GEI provides the technical experience, know-how and risk management expertise to help get your projects out of the ground. We work closely with property owners, developers, managers, and your financial, legal, architectural and contractor teams. We provide critical geotechnical and environmental due diligence prior to property acquisition, helping you understand the wide range of underground conditions that may impact project success, such as contamination, buried structures and utilities, and soil conditions. Development planning that carefully considers underground conditions are far more likely to be completed on time and on budget.
Once clients have decided to build, GEI provides foundation designs and geotechnical recommendations, and has particular expertise in designing foundations for difficult sites, such as congested urban locations with poorly mapped underground utilities, close adjacent buildings, narrow streets and former landfills. Our geotechnical specialties include slurry wall technology, excavation support system design, and vibration monitoring control. We provide complete construction support, from pre-bid consultation and cost estimating through design, construction, and monitoring. We prepare conceptual designs for pricing and, where appropriate, recommend alternative designs or construction methods that can further save you time and money.
GEI Consultants Online provides information on more than one hundred of our services, many of which may be relevant to your interests. We encourage you to review our Services section and related pages, including video introductions by spokespersons for our geotechnical, environmental, water resources and ecological practice areas.
