Geotechnical engineering services are needed at construction and civil engineering projects to characterize and address the geological and soil conditions at the site. For new construction, a geotechnical investigation can be essential to determine the soil properties, stability and bearing capacity of the ground. This information helps in designing the foundation and ensuring the safety of the structure.
For Infrastructure projects like roads, highways, railways and airports, geotechnical studies are crucial to the design of proper subgrade, pavement structures, and retaining walls, by taking into account soil properties and load-bearing capacities.
Earthworks and excavations often require geotechnical assessments to ensure stability and safety. Slope stability analysis, foundation repair and retrofitting, and geohazard mitigation are other situations where geotechnical engineering helps in diagnosing problems and recommending appropriate remediation measures.
