Foundation Investigation & Design
GeoStructures understands the various factors that can contribute to costly foundation expenses, which is why we aim to develop technically-sound support systems while minimizing project costs with innovative and practical solutions. From standard services to soil-structure interaction modeling and comprehensive foundation design and inspection, our services encompass all types of support systems and load testing.
Optimum foundation designs do not naturally arise from equations or design charts; they are a product of outstanding engineering judgment developed through years of experience in the design and construction fields. When multiple foundation types seem equally feasible, selecting the best system for the job can be challenging but also very rewarding. Responsible design optimization requires us to look beyond subsurface investigations and routine cost estimates.
Our engineers are skilled at asking the right questions about site grading, construction sequencing, scheduling, abilities of local construction forces, and other project-specific variables that could affect design or construction of a foundation. Our experience encompasses all types of support systems and load testing, including:
- Shallow foundations
- Mat footings
- Driven, drilled, jetted, bored, auger cast, precast, and cast-in-place piles
- Drilled piers or caissons
