Geotechnical Engineering

Creating Solutions from the Ground Up

Geotechnical engineering is a critical component of any earth-supported structure or facility. SK Geotechnical provides a full range of geotechnical evaluations for highways, bridges, commercial buildings, dams, water systems, wastewater facilities, industrial facilities, and many other types of projects.

Understand
We listen to your needs to understand your project.

Approach
Our professionals become an integral part of your design and construction team. Having our own drill rigs and full-service soils laboratory allows us to more readily mobilize to sites and evaluate the engineering properties of the soils with a goal of completing the work on time.

Solve
Our geotechnical engineers have the necessary experience to evaluate the subsurface soil, bedrock, and groundwater conditions for your site, then provide the recommended design parameters and solutions. We maintain communication throughout the geotechnical evaluation to deliver successful projects for long-term performance.
