As structures are built, the surrounding earth, its properties, and its stability is absolutely critical to safety and usage. Without a solid foundation during the construction process, entire structures are at risk for long-term unsatisfactory performance. That’s why geotechnical engineering helps to provide peace of mind. Our geotechnical engineers take every possibility into account, thus ensuring that structures not only meet, but exceed expectations and standards. Very simply, there is no wiggle room for risk.
DLZ has provided geotechnical engineering services for a wide range of structures, including, but not limited to:
- High-rise office buildings
- Wastewater treatment plants
- Shopping centers
- Dams, levees, locks, and other water control facilities
We have also conducted analysis and design for a number of slope stabilization and seepage control projects throughout the Midwest.
Unlike most organizations, DLZ actually brings all of the necessary geotechnical service lines together under one roof. Further, DLZ’s geotechnical professionals provide a full range of geotechnical, geo-structural, geo-environmental, and materials engineering services. This includes laboratory testing of soils and materials, construction monitoring and testing, as well as drilling and subsurface investigation and sampling.
