Geotechnical Engineering

Most capital improvement projects involve separate civil, geotechnical and structural engineering firms, yet these fields are all interrelated and interdependent. SEI offers civil, geotechnical and structural engineering services, giving our team a unique advantage over other firms due to our expertise in all these areas of practice. If practical, we typically utilize the same engineer throughout an entire project, ensuring a thorough and complete set of project documents.

We have developed specialized computer applications and procedures that allow us to integrate the geotechnical engineering parameters of a project with the civil and structural design aspects of a project. Several of these applications allow us to analyze the soil conditions under the loading of different foundation designs. For example, we are able to analyze settlement effects from various footing designs concurrently. This produces optimized results for our clients and often results in cost savings.
