Geotechnical Engineering

Working closely with your architectural and engineering design team, our geotechnical engineers, geologists and technical staff perform site explorations to develop geotechnical design recommendations based upon subsurface conditions and risk tolerance, as well as the project schedule and budget.

Geotechnical Engineering

Our investigation methods include: 

  • Drilling and rock coring
  • Traditional excavation
  • Geophysics
  • Terrain analysis
  • Geologic mapping
  • Subsurface instrumentation/monitoring 

Our laboratory is accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) and provides soil and rock testing to support the technical evaluation and engineering design for:

  • Shallow foundations
  • Driven piles
  • Drilled piers
  • Earthquake engineering
  • Retaining walls
  • Engineered excavations
  • Transportation infrastructure
  • Dams and levees
  • Landfills
  • Forensic studies
  • Specialty ground improvement/stabilization systems 

“I have worked with the Wallace Group a number of times since 2017. I have always found them to be diligent, conscientious and easy to work with. I recommend them, without hesitation, to anyone that needs geotechnical expertise.”
