Geotechnical Engineering

An early, critical step for any building project is the analysis of subsurface conditions to determine the optimal foundation. Isett’s Geotechnical Engineering team draws upon a comprehensive understanding of geology, soil mechanics, engineering, and construction to investigate conditions that could impact project cost and building safety.

In addition to design related services, Isett’s technical experts assist owners in identifying experienced contractors to help with construction or remediation work involving sinkhole related failures or other stability concerns, in conjunction with our Environmental Consulting and Forensic Building Investigation departments.

From all aspects of ground-up construction to repair and stabilization work, the integrated team at Isett will work directly with the project owner and their contractor to deliver turnkey solutions, helping keep your project on schedule and within budget.
