Geotechnical Engineering

We achieve practical foundation results through analysis, design, and solutions tailored for each project.

The strength of any built structure depends on accurately predicting how earth materials will behave under engineered conditions. At ATC, we help our clients address subsurface conditions and geotechnical issues throughout all project phases including feasibility, planning, design, development, construction, and post-construction.

Our in-depth knowledge helps mitigate geotechnical issues up front to assure an efficient foundation design while minimizing change orders, delays, and overall costs. Our resources are complemented by our full-service AASHTO-certified laboratories, fleet of in-house and qualified subcontractor all-terrain and truck-mounted drill rigs, and exploration equipment to evaluate soil and rock conditions.
