Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical Engineering and TestingCritical to all projects ranging from commercial development to infrastructure are the soil properties that support these structural and underground components. A creative approach to geotechnical engineering may be the difference between a very expensive solution and one that appropriately fits the subsurface conditions and the project budget.

Over the last six decades, Western Technologies performed literally tens of thousands of geotechnical evaluations. Our experience and technical resources combine to produce cost-effective geotechnical engineering recommendations.

Western Technologies maintains local soils laboratories, subsurface exploration equipment, and a locally experienced staff of geotechnical engineers, geologists, and technicians. Our range of capabilities is especially important to clients with demanding schedules and unique soils-related challenges.
