Geotechnical Investigation

Geotechnical Investigation is a specialized area of civil engineering, which is associated with the design, construction, maintenance and renovation of footings, foundation walls, pile foundations, raft foundation, caissions and all others structural members which form the foundations of buildings and other engineering structures. A Geotechnical Investigation project ideally begins with a survey of underlying materials and their physical, mechanical and chemical properties. GTECH CONSULTANCY SERVICES holds market leadership position across India in organized geotechnical Investigation sector. We are capable of providing all related engineering value additions ranging from Field Investigations, Field Testing, Laboratory Testing as well as Foundation Consultancy by own organized setup. We are ISO 9001:2008 certified for engineering qualities.A summary of the services we provide in the Geotechnical section are as given below:
