Geotechnical Engineering

geotechnical engineering services

Geotechnical engineering services are an essential component of civil engineering and construction projects.  Engtec provides geotechnical engineering services that mainly includes assessing soil and rock properties, conducting slope stability analysis, providing recommendations for foundations, earthworks, and geotechnical aspects of projects.

Our knowledge in this area is derived from the understanding of current environmental regulations and a thorough understanding of soil and rock mechanics, groundwater hydrology, foundation engineering and construction techniques.

Engtec’s concepts are driven by market requirements and regulatory compliance, while reducing liability and costs. Our philosophy is to maximize benefits for mankind and the local / regional ecology in every project.

Some common geotechnical engineering services are summarized below:

  • Site Investigation: Geotechnical engineers conduct site investigations to assess the subsurface conditions and gather data on soil and rock properties. This includes drilling boreholes, taking soil samples, conducting in-situ tests, and analyzing laboratory results.
  • Soil and Rock Testing: Geotechnical laboratories perform various tests to determine the physical, mechanical, and chemical properties of soil and rock samples. These tests include particle size analysis, compaction tests, consolidation tests, shear strength tests, permeability tests, and more.
  • Foundation Design: Geotechnical engineers analyze soil properties to design safe and efficient foundations for structures. This includes evaluating bearing capacity, settlement analysis, slope stability analysis, and recommending appropriate foundation types (such as shallow foundations or deep foundations like piles or caissons).
  • Retaining Wall Design: Geotechnical engineers assess soil properties and geotechnical conditions to design retaining walls that can resist lateral earth pressure and provide stability for excavations or slopes.
  • Earthworks and Slope Stability: Geotechnical engineers analyze slopes and embankments to assess stability and design appropriate measures to prevent landslides or slope failures. They also provide recommendations for earthworks and grading to ensure safe and stable construction.
  • Ground Improvement Techniques: When soil conditions are poor, geotechnical engineers recommend ground improvement techniques to enhance the engineering properties of the soil. This can include methods like soil stabilization, compaction, preloading, grouting, or the use of geosynthetics.
  • Geotechnical Instrumentation and Monitoring: Geotechnical engineers install and monitor instruments to measure ground movements, pore pressure, settlement, and other parameters during and after construction. This helps in assessing the performance of the structure and ensures its long-term stability.

Above are just a few examples of geotechnical engineering services. The scope of services can vary depending on the specific project requirements.  Engtec is ready to work anywhere as the conditions require. Our staff is highly experienced with significant experience in all areas of geotechnical engineering projects that is a great resource for all your needs and projects.

At Engtec Consulting Inc. the experience and technical expertise that are available are second to none in the consulting industry. This is a direct result of the dedicated service level that is maintained for all projects irrespective of their value.
