Geotechnical



Our geotechnical experience for transportation projects is extensive, with numerous geotechnical projects completed in the last decade alone. Moreover, the diverse technical background of AEG’s staff enables us to view projects in the context of the “big picture,” including the need to balance infrastructure development with protection of the environment.

Beneath the Surface

AEG has amassed formidable experience in engineering geology, soils and rock mechanics, scour analysis, and foundation engineering for the design, inspection, and construction of civil and transportation projects. AEG has provided geotechnical recommendations and/or complete design services for determining appropriate foundation types, foundation elements, site preparation and grading, and construction procedures.

In addition to providing analysis and design services, AEG is experienced in the use of detailed quality control procedures to monitor the construction of many types of earthen structures and foundations. AEG is skilled in traditional investigation methods as well as specialized state-of-the-art geophysical techniques.

Our experience also includes field reconnaissance, preparation of drilling contracts and specifications; supervision and inspection of subsurface exploration; and preparation of geologic logs, sections, and profiles.
