Geotechnical Engineering

Sanborn Head believes a solid foundation is essential for a successful site development. It is our experience that the subsurface conditions will most often dictate the project schedule, premium costs for site development, and ultimately the overall project success.

Prior to starting our geotechnical investigation, we gather a full understanding of our client’s expectations and the project’s needs to develop a strategy that is appropriate for the complexity of the project. By being diligent, responsive and understanding of our client’s tolerances for risk, we help to achieve successful outcomes for our clients, the community, and the environment.

From the preliminary site investigation through design and construction, we continually look for opportunities to add value through our experience, innovation, cooperation, and teamwork.  Experience is the key to successful geotechnical engineering, and our senior geotechnical staff have over a combined 100 years of experience on hundreds of projects.  Areas of focus for our development clients include:

  • Earth Support Systems
  • Ground Improvement
  • Foundation Systems
  • Earthwork Strategies
  • Construction Support
  • Instrumentation & Analysis
