Geotechnical Engineering

The material on which your foundation rests makes a difference in your property’s future. Geotechnical engineering investigates the soil, rock, and man-made soil deposits on which a structure is planned to rest and evaluates the possible risks associated with the sub-surface material.

We believe that it is important for our Geotechnical Engineers to be involved at the beginning of and throughout a construction project.

It’s common for our environment to clash with existing man-made structures. We can help you understand the challenge and develop a resolution to help preserve your investment.

Prein&Newhof’s experienced geotechnical team can perform subsurface investigations and provide strong support for:

  • Underground Structures
  • Buildings
  • Pavements
  • Bridges
  • Retaining Walls
  • Utility Installation
  • Foundations
  • Earthwork Operations
  • Excavation Support Systems
  • Soil Stabilization
  • Dewatering


We also offer field assistance to make sure your projects are built correctly, including foundation monitoring and evaluation of subsurface conditions and earthwork operations.
