Geotechnical Engineering

The natural environment presents substantial risks. MTA Engineers help navigate and mitigate those risks. 

Today’s structures require a comprehensive investigation of the physical and structural properties of soil and rock under and around your construction projects. We plan and execute detailed geotechnical site investigations of the earth beneath the surface of your property or “subsurface strata”.

Assessment and Testing

MTA Engineers can assess the physical and structural properties of soil and rock by studying the behavior to various stresses that may be implied by massive projects. We are able to characterize surface conditions in order to measure properties of in-place subsurface materials and collect soils for laboratory testing.

We evaluate information both from the field and from lab work to develop geotechnical recommendations. We can provide unique solutions to ground improvements that may reduce direct costs or save time on your construction projects.
