AEG brings more than 60 years of geotechnical engineering experience to federal, state, municipal, and private clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region. Our geotechnical department is experienced in engineering geology, soils and rock mechanics, scour analysis, and foundation engineering for the design, inspection, and construction of civil and transportation projects. AEG provides geotechnical recommendations and/or complete design services for determining appropriate foundation types, foundation elements, site preparation and grading, and construction procedures.  Our geotechnical experience is extensive, with more than 400 geotechnical projects completed in the last decade alone.

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 has the knowledgeable and experienced personnel ready to successfully complete simultaneous geotechnical projects responsively, upon short notice, and with tight completion schedules. We have a proven record working with a variety of clients on thousands of transportation agreements, and have experience procuring, managing, and providing oversight of subsurface investigation/boring, sampling, and testing programs. Our expertise also includes field reconnaissance, preparation of drilling contracts and specifications, and preparation of geologic logs, sections, and profiles. Our design experience comprises shallow and deep foundations for various structures such as bridges, buildings, retaining walls, levees, stormwater facilities, sound barrier walls, and culverts.
