Geotechnical site investigations document site-unique characteristics such as depth to bedrock or liquefaction susceptibility. A subsurface exploration program can include tasks such as test borings, rock coring, water table monitoring, or laboratory analysis of soil samples. This information is critical for foundation analysis and for project planning in the early stages.
SOIL AND FOUNDATION
ANALYSIS AND DESIGN
GNCB’s engineers are familiar with a wide range of subsurface conditions and foundations types. Our combined structural and geotechnical capabilities are a benefit to our Clients since we can select the appropriate and most cost effective foundation system early on in the project. Our details are coordinated to incorporate the requirements of both disciplines which reduces the amount of coordination required in the field and thus the cost of the project.
Proper soil strengthening, earthworks construction, and foundation installation are crucial for successful building performance. GNCB provides construction support for our geotechnical projects which can range from monitoring the installation of deep foundations to performing preconstruction surveys for properties adjacent to the construction site.
