Construction Observation Services

Responsive Service

Observing and testing the geotechnical aspects of site development during foundation installation and grading are an important aspect of our geotechnical work.  We verify that grading and foundation installation is being completed per plan and building department requirements.  If conditions exposed during construction are different than expected, we work with the contractor and design team to achieve economical ways to achieve the project requirements.


Our field personnel are responsive, well trained, and capable of giving guidance as needed to achieve the project requirements.  Contact our field supervisor, Benoit Brisbois, to schedule site visits.
