Geotechnical Engineering is a field of civil engineering associated with the engineering behaviors of the Earth’s geology and materials with specific regard to design and construction on or within the ground.

Common areas are subsurface exploration, design and construction of foundations, and various earth structures. FGE’s team has performed 1000’s of different geotechnical investigations for architects, engineers, developers, insurance companies, homeowners and others throughout Florida. The investigations are always performed efficiently and can be customized to meet your objectives in the most cost-effective approach possible, while following ASTM and other industry best practices to deliver a quality investigation you can rely on.

Our Geotechnical Services include:

Retaining Earth Structures

Retaining Earth Structures are used to hold back earth or fill to maintain a difference in the elevation of ground surfaces.

Foundation Design & Inspection

A foundation is the lowest supporting layer of a structure. The design is dependent on the applied loads as well as the bearing soils. Inspections can be done to insure the foundation was designed properly and has not been damaged or compromised.

Subsurface Exploration & Testing

Subsurface exploration and testing is typically conducted to investigate underlying geologic conditions existing below the ground surface. The investigation includes the collection and interpretation of samples from the shallow and deep subsurface by various techniques such as drilling or direct-push.
