GEOTECHNICAL

Geotechnical Engineering should be at the forefront of every construction project. The design considerations, whether structural, civil or utility oriented, greatly depend on the subsurface soil’s structural capacity and composition. Without detailed information about the subsurface, provided by a geotechnical engineer, the project could potentially run into numerous construction related problems that could lead to higher project costs. H&P’s Geotechnical Engineering Department utilizes a state-of-the-art track drill rig to provide drilling services and subsurface investigations.
