Our clients include government agencies, structural engineers, transportation engineers architects, developers,
homeowners, and private businesses.
We have many clients with whom we have 45 or more years of working relationships.
Some of our work involves returning to a previous project for a building addition or site
expansion. Our project archives are helpful in supplementing the current geotechnical
exploration program, with regard to what subsurface conditions might be expected.
To affirm our commitment to our natural environment, we installed a total of 198 high efficiency photovoltaic solar panels. The amount of electricity produced equals our electric demand.
To further reduce our environmental impact, we are investing in new equipment with the most current low emission engines.
