Soil Bearing Capacity
G Tech can provide soil bearing capacity recommendations for the proper design of all building foundations as well as confirmatory testing in the field during construction.
Typical residential foundations are comprised of shallow footings. G Tech personnel are experienced to handle any foundational soil condition that may arise. In addition to soil bearing capacity recommendations, all of our inspections include other assessments such as soil suitability, groundwater and cold weather considerations. We go further than our competition. G Tech conducts extra corroborative tests to determine natural density and moisture conditions on every available site at no additional cost.
Recommendations can be made right on site during the site visit enabling construction to continue without delay. Remember that every report will be signed by a Professional Engineer who is a member of APEGGA and issued within 7 days. We are also pleased to offer all inclusive fixed rates.

Commercial buildings usually involve shallow footing foundations or deep pile foundations. Shallow footing foundation inspections for commercial foundations are similar to residential inspections except additional tests are conducted due to size. Pile installation inspections are also offered. Information and recommendations are provided on site during the inspection to avoid costly construction delays.
