The western United State’s dynamic geologic environment requires attention during site development and improvements. Soil Exploration Company, Inc. augments its geotechnical engineering capabilities with complete engineering geology services that provide geologic data essential to design and construction of projects throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada.
Our experienced technical staff includes personnel with expertise in comprehensive engineering geology including the following specific disciplines:
|Rock Mechanics||Soil Mechanics|
|Landslide Mitigation||Faulting and Seismicity|
|Earthquake Engineering||Ground Response Spectrum|
|Liquefaction Analysis||Subdrain Design|
|Butress Design||Groundwater Movement|
|Rockfall Hazard||Sewage Disposal|
|Bedrock Rippability Evaluation||Hydrogeology|
|Groundwater Resources Evaluation||Groundwater Occurrence|
The local and regional geologic setting of each project are major considerations for site construction and improvements. Our staff of trained geologists carefully evaluate the structural geologic features of each project through extensive literature review and field mapping. Site work is supplemented with examination and interpretation of sterioscopic aerial photographs and subsurface exploration.
Geologic data pertinent to the proposed development is collected and evaluated in terms of foundation stability. The geologic data is used to supplement our geotechnical recommendations and provide a comprehensive report. Structural geologic features that are typically evaluated during project design include:
|Joint Patterns||Fracture Systems|
|Shear Zones||Seepage or Springs|
