Geotechnical Investigations and Reports
From field investigations to final reports our staff has experience providing recommendations for bearing capacities, retaining wall foundations, foundation subgrade preparation requirements, excavation and backfill requirements, and recommendations for lateral earth pressures for retaining walls. ABCO Engineering has prepared reports for industrial, municipal, commercial, and residential sites. Our staff also provide concrete, asphalt, and gravel pavement designs. ABCO Engineering provides designs for geogrid and geotextile reinforced roadways over very soft subgrade soils and high groundwater conditions.
Our geotechnical services include installation of monitoring wells, monitoring groundwater fluctuation, sampling, and testing.
ABCO Engineering can inspect your foundation excavations before formwork or reinforcing steel is placed to verify conformance with site geotechnical recommendations. Routinely our staff performs inspections and prepares reports for projects subject to the hillside ordinances in the Treasure Valley.
