GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING



Effective recommendation design

Recognized as a leader in efficient geotechnical engineering, CTE continues a history of developing effective designs for conventional and complex site requirements. Through strategic planning, we develop necessary site solutions to minimize geologic or seismic impacts on the development. Detailed reporting formats provide the planning criteria necessary to mitigate existing site constraints through practical, efficient, and appropriate geotechnical engineering design.


Commitment to engineering excellence

CTE ensures a maximum utilization of site potential. Coordinated geotechnical and geological service teams conduct comprehensive site investigations to determine subsurface soil, rock, and groundwater conditions. Geotechnical investigations include the analysis and recommendations for site grading, excavation, slope stability, shoring, foundation design, design of necessary above and below grade walls, and site pavements.

Our fundamental objectives are cost-effective recommendations associated with design practicality and rapid information turnaround for our clients. Geotechnical studies further support civil engineering design recommendations for conclusive land-use planning including road design, asphalt, concrete and pervious paving requirements, and safe site drainage.
