Of or pertaining to practical applications of geological science in civil engineering.

The geotechnical engineering services provided by AESI involve the evaluation of soil, geologic, and hydrogeologic conditions at each project site to assess their potential impacts and/or constraints to the proposed project. Based on the results of our analyses, and input from the client and other design/construction team members, we develop alternatives to address any potential impacts to the project. The alternatives are then analyzed relative to cost, schedule, and project goals, with the results being clearly communicated to the client. The following are examples of the typical range of geotechnical services that AESI can provide for public and private projects.
