The "Foundation" of our Geotechnical Work
A good geotechnical field and laboratory investigation is the “foundation” of any geotechnical design recommendations. As with many other things, geotechnical design is “garbage in garbage out”. The design recommendations are only as good as the input data that comes from the geotechnical investigation.
NCS has performed countless investigations, and is well suited to handle even the most demanding of investigation requirements. Whether it is site reconnaissance and geologic mapping, standard truck mounted hollow stem auger drilling, air rotary (Tubex / Stratex / Odex), track-mounted difficult access, extreme dificult access drilling/coring with helicopter mobilizations, we are prepared to do whatever is necessary to obtain the appropriate surface and subsurface information.
Although NCS does not operate it’s own drill rigs and geotechnical testing laboratory, we maintain close personal and working relationships with several of the best drillers and labs in Arizona and nationwide. We closely monitor the work that these trusted subconsultants do for us, and we go above and beyond in our data analysis and reduction.
