The initial objective of the geotechnical engineering service is to evaluate and characterize subsurface soil conditions so that subsurface structures can be properly designed. The information we obtain through our geotechnical explorations provide necessary site specific data to facilitate our design of structural foundations, underground utilities, earthwork shoring and bracing.
Clients often take advantage of Whitman’s capability to perform geotechnical explorations and environmental investigations simultaneously. The end result is more information in less time at a reduced cost.
Geotechnical explorations should be viewed as an investment. Having the necessary information to evaluate design options and select the appropriate design for the project is the return on the investment.
