Geotechnical

Full-Service Support From Start to Finish

CDG’s full range of geotechnical services ensures timely, cost-effective and expert design solutions from conception through project completion. Our geotechnical expertise is built on integrating advanced geoscience technologies with the physical environment.

Prepared for Demanding Projects and Timelines

CDG’s experienced designers specialize in conventional and innovative geotechnical procedures for foundation design, ground improvement and stabilization, and earth retention structures. CDG has in-house drilling equipment including both a truck-mounted and a skid steer drilling rig to successfully achieve demanding project schedules.

Construction Materials Testing

Construction materials testing is an essential element of the construction process. It ensures all projects adhere to design construction material specifications. CDG’s experienced team of engineers and testing technicians are trained to identify non-compliant elements and offer creative solutions to provide confidence in a successful and timely result.
