As part of the geotechnical investigation package we offer, A.M. Geoconsultconducts surface exploration and/or subsurface exploration at projectsites using advanced and sturdy equipment.  Methods are carefullyperformed by experienced technicians in strict conformity with theclient’s schedule to obtain soil samples and/or various data aboutsurface and subsurface conditions.  These samples and data are thenanalyzed to address critical geotechnical/geological issues such as theimplications of active fault location to the proposed construction,moisture content and depth of ground water, geologic history and depthof bedrock, secondary effects of liquefaction and seismic events, soilcorrosivity, presence of unsuitable soils, and excavation stability.

Some of the field exploration services we conduct include:

  • -Test Boring and Core Drilling
  • -Angle Drilling
  • -Deep Well Drilling
  • -Low Clearance Drilling
  • -Offshore Drilling
  • -Electrical Resistivity and Electromagnetic Surveying
  • -Seismic Reflection and Refraction Profiling
  • -Handheld Vane Shear
  • -Grouting and Pressure Grouting
  • -Wash Boring
  • -Standard Penetration Test (SPT) and Split-Barrel Sampling
  • -Thin-Walled Tube Sampling (Undisturbed Sampling)
  • -Rock Core Drilling and Sampling
  • -Ground Water Elevation
  • -Test Pit Sampling
  • -Auger Hole Sampling
  • -Borrow Source Sampling
  • -Sampling of Aggregates
