Construction - Geohazards

Construction

Get well-engineered solutions for your construction project and know that we will work with you as your project moves forward. Our team of engineers and geologists have extensive knowledge of Florida terrain and provide you with options that meet your time and budget constraints. We regularly work with local jurisdictions and can adeptly get you the answers you need. Our expertise with subsurface materials and conditions, plus our understanding of your project constraints and requirements, provide you with exactly the resources you need to get the job done. Questions? Call us and let’s discuss your project.


1.1-Construction-Geo-Tech-ServicesGeotechnical Construction Services

Validate foundation bearing requirements and earth retention solutions using value engineering, sample testing, soil modification, erosion control and forensic investigations.

Foundation Bearing Conditions

Evaluate foundation load bearing capacity using hand cone penetration tests for density, test pit excavations, standard penetration test borings and foundation type analysis.

Subsurface Investigations

Identify problematic soil conditions and provide effective methods of remediation.

Laboratory Testing

Understand soil conditions with routine Atterberg Limits tests, organic content tests, sieve analysis and moisture content evaluations.

Ground Improvement

Ensure soils are properly prepared and improved or modified prior to site construction.

Structural Support

Obtain structural building designs that address problematic soils; including foundation and structural support, recommendations and alternative designs.

Slope Stability

Determine slope stability and control possible erosion through geotechnical and geologic site investigations, modeling and analysis, including design mitigation services.


1.1-Construction-Geologic-SurveyGeophysical Surveys

Determine the subsurface features that may affect your project and how to remediate any challenges prior to construction. Geophysical surveys are a foundational element to our service offering and Geohazards delivers cutting edge technology with our advanced ground penetrating radar (GPR), electrical resistivity imaging (ERI) and electromagnetic (EM) equipment. Our experienced team can determine the ideal geophysical method for your project.

Site Assessments

Site assessment surveys are performed as a part of pre-drilling and pre-excavation surveys. Techniques used for characterization of a site include ground penetrating radar, electrical resistivity measurements and electromagnetics. The results define depth to limestone, delineation of clay and sand bodies, areas of debris, former excavation boundaries, and void spaces.

UST Surveys

Electromagnetic and magnetic techniques combined with ground penetrating radar can effectively locate an underground storage tank or confirm the removal of a UST.

Utility Locating

Combining traditional radio frequency utility locating techniques with geophysical techniques including ground penetrating radar and electromagnetics provides a complete picture of active and abandoned utility lines.

Rebar Locating & Concrete Assessment

2-D and 3-D ground penetrating radar surveys to detect rebar, PT cables, conduits and void spaces in and below concrete structures.
