Geotechnical Engineering


Mid-Tex Testing can provide a complete range of geotechnical engineering services. Our organization helps define the construction and long-term performance risks associated with subsurface conditions. These services include planning, field and laboratory programs, design recommendations, quality control, and performance studies. Applications are for roadways, buildings, airport facilities, and other civil and private projects.

 

Planning

Mid-Tex Testing is able to assist in providing geotechnical support services during the planning of a new project or expanding an existing facility. These services identify the best site for a potential project, potential cost considerations, and estimate construction and grading requirements. Services include:

  • Preliminary geotechnical and geologic studies
  • Development of foundation support systems, deep and shallow
  • Geophysical studies
  • Determination of borrow availability (both on-site and off-site)

 

Design

Geotechnical engineering is an important consideration in the design of a new or expanding facility and during remediation activities for a failed or distressed facility. Mid-Tex Testing’s geotechnical design services generally include soil test borings, in situ testing, laboratory testing and engineering analysis. Specific information and design recommendations may contain:

  • Recommendations for foundation type, excavation and grading, soil stability, and site preparation
  • Slope stability analysis and lateral earth pressure determinations
  • Pavement design
  • Earthwork Testing and Inspection
  • Drilled Shaft Inspections
  • Driven Pile Inspection
  • Asphalt Plant Inspections
  • Asphalt Paving Inspections
  • Pre-stressed Concrete Plant Inspection
  • Concrete Testing and Inspections
