Geotechnical Engineering

The Rone Geotechnical Team provides extensive knowledge and expertise of local subsurface conditions by providing design and construction recommendations that save clients time and money. Our clients come to us with their most challenging projects because they know that having the right foundation is critical to a project’s success.

Our experienced drillers, laboratory technicians and geotechnical engineers rely on the latest tools and techniques for evaluating soil and groundwater conditions and determining their impact on proposed facilities and infrastructure. Beyond test results and hard data, our professionals deliver a level of expertise that is unique to our market. We bring invaluable knowledge and insightful thinking to support the success of the project.

Beginning with due diligence and site acquisition, Rone’s Geotechnical engineers work with owners, developers and their project teams including architects, engineers and contractors to evaluate subsurface conditions to determine how the soils will respond to proposed structural loadings. Based on the results of subsurface evaluations, our experts provide detailed recommendations for site development, foundations, floor slabs, pavements, utilities, earth retention systems, retaining walls, slopes and other site features. Our experience leads to practical engineering solutions that help reduce construction costs and improve overall performance.
