Geotechnical Services

Geotechnical services play an essential role in understanding the character of soils and rocks and the engineering implications of their usage. This knowledge is critical for designing and constructing civil engineering and building projects, such as dams, embankments, foundations, and other building structures. At Cobalt, our geotechnical services are designed to help you understand the engineering implications of soil, rock, and groundwater on your project and provide recommendations on how best to engineer and design foundations for long-term and sustainable performance. Our comprehensive services include the following:

Geotechnical Soil and Rock Testing: Using the most sophisticated equipment on the market, our team drills boreholes to take soil samples. Such samples are subjected to intensive laboratory tests to determine their properties. Some of the tests performed include grain size analysis and shear strength testing. With this laboratory analysis and investigation, a geotechnical report is derived, identifying soil characteristics, soil capacities, expected behaviors of the soil, and foundation recommendations.

Site Exploration: Our team of experienced geotechnical engineers can provide detailed information on the subsurface conditions of a site, including soil type, bedrock depth, bedrock strength, and groundwater table.

Slope Stability Analysis: We offer comprehensive slope stability analysis to assess the risk of landslides and other forms of slope failure.

By leveraging our expertise and experience, we can help you make informed decisions about your project and ensure that it meets all safety and engineering requirements. Contact us today to learn more about our geotechnical services.
