Advanced Geotechnical Solutions is a full service geotechnical engineering company specializing in state of the art exploration and engineering analyses to better understand soil and rock prior to construction. A more in depth understanding of these characteristics allows us to make accurate analyses and recommendations rather than risky recommendations which others report on a regular basis. These analyses and recommendations ultimately lead to safer and less expensive projects to construct. Lowering the cost and risk of the project is more important now than ever before with fewer projects and smaller construction budgets.
“Each year in the United States, expansive soils cause $2.3 billion in damage to houses, other buildings, roads, pipelines, and other structures. This is more than twice the damage from floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes combined.”
“U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) estimated $9 billion damages in 1981 resulting from expansive soils. It indicated that shrink-swell problems were the second most likely problem a homeowner would encounter, after insects.”
