Subsurface Exploration is a cornerstone of our comprehensive geotechnical services, aimed at providing vital insight into the geological conditions below the surface. Through a range of advanced techniques and tools in combination with our extensive experience, we ensure a thorough understanding of the subsurface environment to determine the right construction techniques for your site.
Laboratory analyses are an essential component of geotechnical engineering allowing us to gain insights into the intricate subsurface conditions of a site. Our full range of laboratory tests provide thorough characterization and strength determination of the soil and rock that comprise and are ultimately used for construction at the site. We typically run advanced soils and rock strength analyses because advanced is our standard!
We build on the advanced laboratory analyses we performed to characterize subsurface soil and rock at your site with engineering analyses designed to solve common and challenging questions. Analyses for the loading capacity of soil, settlement, expanse potential, lateral earth pressure, and pavement section thickness are performed. We also perform analyses for a wide range of additional scenarios as the project complexity dictates. These may include slope stability, liquefaction, and finite element analyses.
The level of complexity of soil and aggregate testing can vary greatly, from basic moisture content assessments to advanced triaxial strength testing. we understand the importance of planning a well-optimized laboratory test program that anticipates project-specific challenges, with a particular emphasis on strength and consolidation testing.
Concrete testing plays a critical role in verifying compliance with required standards and design specifications. Additionally, it ensures that the batching equipment used to mix the concrete remains within specified tolerances, ensuring consistent and reliable quality in the construction process.
These services are an extremely important phase in the development of your project. Our experience and that of our profession clearly indicates that the risk of construction problems and maintenance costs can be significantly lowered by retaining the design geotechnical engineering firm of record to review the project plans and specifications and to provide construction observation services and materials testing.
We provide a continuously growing suite of asphalt services so that you can rest assured pavement section of your project is constructed with quality. The observations and testing performed on asphalt are essential during construction and capabilities include:
Depending on the previous development at or surrounding your site, a crucial step to protect you from environmental impacts is to perform a Phase I environmental site assessment and subsequent Phase II environmental site assessment if needed or necessary. We use a comprehensive combination of historical data research and onsite data collection to research historical activities, perform observations, and sample soil and groundwater at your site so that you can make these significant financial decisions confidently!
We offer comprehensive environmental sampling services to assess and monitor environmental conditions. At Advanced Geotechnical Solutions we provide valuable insights to guide construction projects, land development, and environmental remediation efforts, ensuring compliance and mitigating environmental risks.
From site exploration and laboratory testing to geotechnical engineering analyses and report recommendations, we are with you every step of the way to create safe and budget friendly projects. At AGS, we utilize our engineering education in combination with our extensive experience in geotechnical and geological systems throughout Wyoming and the Rocky Mountain West to expertly analyze your site.
We provide a wide range of construction observation and testing services to help ensure your project is constructed to meet the design plan and specifications. Our AASHTO-Accredited laboratory (Aggregates – Soils – Concrete) can perform a wide range of tests for construction materials testing including, but not limited to, gradations, proctors, plasticity tests, and compressive strength of concrete. Our technicians, many of whom also work in the engineering phase of the project, hold a significant number of training certifications for concrete, aggregates, soils, and asphalt. These trainings often include ACI field and laboratory certifications and WYDOT certifications.
An important element of commercial or rural development is to determine if and what environmental contaminants may have affected your site. We perform Phase I and II environmental site assessments for potential commercial buyers, sellers, and refinancing to help you make an informed decision regarding your financial interests.
