Our staff consists of engineers, geologists, scientists, inspectors drillers, and technicians who have participated in hundreds of projects for federal, state and private sector clients. We provide comprehensive geotechnical engineering services (including field exploration, laboratory testing, engineering analysis, and design, preparation of construction/bid documents, preparation of cost estimates, field inspection, litigation support and construction support) for any type of design/construction project. Our specialties include, but are not limited to, Shallow Foundations, Sinkhole Remediation, Surcharging/Settlement Assessment, Utility Tunneling, Slope Stability Analysis, Pavement Design, Dam/Dike Stability Analysis, Construction Inspection, Subsurface Improvements, Deep Foundations, Deep Dynamic Compaction, Construction Dewatering, Subsurface Contamination Sampling and Testing. We have conducted structural inspection and in-situ testing including structural deformation observation; crack mapping, void detection; corrosion potential evaluation; and concrete durability evaluation. We have installed extensive geotechnical instrumentation, including piezometers, slope indicators, strain gauges, tape extensiometers and settlement sensors, and conducted in-situ testing including hydraulic conductivity (falling head test; well pump-out tests) vane shears for strength determination; pressuremeter, dilatometer, and electric cone penetrometer (CPT). E2CR has experience working in locations such as off-shore sites, swamps and soft soils, and railroad rights-of-way etc. that require specialized skills, equipment, and other considerations.
