Geotechnical Engineering: Depth of quality

We dig deeper for the data that reduces risk, creates trust and makes a project work.

Our geotechnical team delivers timely construction data for almost every kind of building project including buildings, highways, airports, bridges, transmission lines, utilities and infrastructure. We can do this by performing geotechnical explorations with our own drilling rigs and applying the established technology and testing in our own accredited laboratory.

Mobile Drill B-31 and B-53 Drilling Rigs are available for continuous flight auger borings or hollow stem drilling with or without mud. We can drill to depths of 100 feet. PEC’s drilling crews are experienced and have performed subsurface explorations, rock coring, and monitor well installation or abandonment throughout the region.

PEC’s geotechnical team apply confirmed testing procedures to investigate, analyze, and develop geotechnical engineering recommendations and design including:

  • Subsurface Explorations
  • Rock Coring
  • Foundation Soil Evaluation
  • Shallow and Deep Foundation Design
  • Settlement Analysis
  • Slope Stability Analysis
  • Remedial Foundation Design and
  • Construction Recommendations
  • Site Preparation and Earthwork Construction
  • Pavement Design
  • Monitor Well Installation and Abandonment

Your project is only as solid as the soil it's built on. Our geotechnical services give you the information you need about what's hidden below the ground at your site. Then you can get the site preparation and foundation design you need for what you're building above the ground.

PEC's knowledge about the region's soils comes from decades of experience with area architects, owners and contractors.

Our mobile drill rigs enable us to quickly sample soils and deliver your results, to avoid delays in your schedule. We provide an AASHTO accredited lab, comprehensive soil testing capability, and experienced field staff. You get information to assist with a safe, structurally sound, enduring foundation for your structure.

Down-to-earth and under. That's us.
