Deep and Shallow Foundation Solutions

GZA's geotechnical engineers provide the design expertise to evaluate the engineering parameters and project requirements to provide the most appropriate foundation solution for the project.

Foundation system selection depends on the design loads, settlement criteria, construction cost, schedule and most importantly the soil and rock conditions. Constructing foundations with challenging site and soil conditions is overcome through continued on-site support, design modifications in the field and with GZA’s experienced field engineers.

GZA works with the project team to develop design recommendations that best fit client needs, then supports the team through bid and construction phases to provide the highest level of service to our clients.
