Geotechnical 
Engineering

The stability of a structure depends on the integrity of its foundation.  Groundwork Engineering Limited ensures geotechnical investigations are completed to determine existing soil, rock and groundwater conditions for future designs.  The results of these studies allow for the production of drawings and specifications that take into account the structure’s requirements, the longevity of the structure and the land.

Groundwork Engineering is a member of the Canadian Geotechnical Society (CGS).
