Geotechnical Engineering Services


Carmichael Engineering's geotechnical engineers and technicians have a vast amount of project  experience throughout Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Mississippi. Their combined experience and knowledge of geotechnical issues affecting a wide range of construction projects can be used to economically advance the project development. We work closely with the owner and project design consultants along with the contractor to address issues ranging from soil stabilization techniques to the proper selection of foundation systems and pavements. We strive to achieve an appropriate balance between quality and cost to produce a economical high quality project. When unforeseen soil and ground water problems conditions develop, our experience can be an invaluable asset in solving the problem and moving the project forward. Geotechnical services are a key item in the overall planning of a project by experienced owners and developers. The cost of unforeseen problem soil and ground water conditions can result in many times the cost of our geotechnical service fees. A proper geotechnical investigation can in many instances identify potential problems and allow for appropriate design considerations to reduce construction costs and create significant savings in future remedial work and maintenance.
