Geotechnical Consulting Services


Reducing uncertainty regarding soil properties can lead to lower construction costs. Working with AET's sophisticated investigation and laboratory testing tools, along with our experienced geotechnical engineers, your design team gains accurate data and thoughtful recommendations to select appropriate foundation materials.

We were the first geotechnical engineering firm in the area to offer piezocone penetrometer testing, more than a decade ago, to augment traditional soil boring methods. Using these tools to collect more accurate and detailed subsurface soil information can lead to more precise recommendations and less expensive foundation systems.

Our geotechnical engineering team works with structural engineers and architects, contractors, owner's agents and government project managers to support the construction of roads, buildings, bridges, railways, oil and energy sites, levees and dams — projects in which soil/rock properties and geology must be considered in the design. We also have significant experience on complicated landslide and deep foundation projects.

AET offers geotechnical consulting and testing services with a suite of technical capabilities to test, observe and consult on the many aspects of your projects — from planning, design and construction to post-construction maintenance and forensics.
