At Sanborn Head, we provide geotechnical engineering and environmental services to the development, institutional and public sector communities – shepherding the project from initial due diligence investigations through design and construction. We have proven experience with retail, commercial, residential and mixed use facilities, as well as healthcare and educational institutions.

“The best consultants have the confidence and experience to tell clients what they need to hear, not necessarily what they want to hear. Over the years, Sanborn Head has earned our trust by effectively identifying innovative and economical solutions to some of our most complex environmental and geotechnical challenges.”

– Ed Marsteiner, SVP & Director of Acquisitions, National Development
By integrating geotechnical and environmental services with our understanding of construction practices, we routinely develop practical, creative designs to complex underground problems that allow projects to move forward in a timely and cost-effective manner.  We are especially skilled and provide the highest value to our clients when the subsurface conditions are most difficult. We provide these services on all types of projects from complex, urban, multi-level below grade construction to large-scale, suburban mixed-use development to schools and dams. 
“We knew that our unusual and demanding mix of project criteria would require a nontraditional approach to our geotechnical and foundation systems and an experienced, hands-on team who could lead and coordinate this work effectively among other design disciplines and the construction team.  Sanborn Head brought a terrific team to the project and worked closely with the rest of the project team to develop timely and innovative solutions to design and construction issues that allowed a very complex project to come in ahead of schedule and under budget.”

– Bill Kane, Senior Director Acquisitions & Leasing, BioMed RealtyTrust, Inc.

By understanding our client’s development goals and needs, providing creative solutions and services to meet these goals and delivering in an expeditious timeframe, Sanborn Head has developed strong trusted partnerships. This trust repeatedly leads to our client’s successfully acquiring, developing and restoring properties to productive use and allows Sanborn Head to responsibly guide them through the management of associated risks.
