Our geotechnical department is experienced in engineering geology, soils and rock mechanics, scour analysis, and foundation engineering for designing, inspecting, and constructing civil and transportation projects. AEG provides geotechnical recommendations and 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 using detailed quality control procedures to monitor the construction of many types of earthen structures and foundations.

AEG has knowledgeable and experienced personnel ready to complete simultaneous geotechnical projects responsively, upon short notice, and with tight completion schedules. We have a proven record working with various 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 bridges, buildings, retaining walls, levees, stormwater facilities, sound barrier walls, culverts, and more.
