Geotechnical engineering is the practice of using the principles of soil mechanics and rock mechanics to investigate subsurface conditions and the engineering behavior of earth materials. By evaluating the stability of man-made soil deposits and natural slopes, as well as testing the physical, mechanical and chemical properties of surfaces and sub-surfaces one can determine risks posed by site conditions as well as design and monitor earthworks and foundation construction.
Design and construction of functional and cost-effective structures require a thorough understanding of local soil, rock and groundwater conditions. High Plains Engineering & Design, LLC provides a wide range of services to support all phases of a project, from preliminary design through completion of the building process.
The experience and expertise of engineers and technicians throughout our company, help to assess the construction and long-term performance risks associated with subsurface conditions. We participate as a vital member of the project team, focusing on project objectives and using innovative technologies to provide practical design recommendations.
A Pit Evaluation is completed to determine the permeability of the soil in order to properly design a septic field. Our geotechnical department has the knowledge and experience to accurately assess the soil conditions and site to design the most economical septic system for your site.
