Geotechnical and Structural Services


Nobody’s subsurface expertise runs deeper.


Since our inception, GIE has prided itself in offering state-of-the-art geotechnical and structural services to contractors and structural engineers across the Midwest. These services include: 

Feasibility Studies
Your site is vacant for a reason. Others have passed on it due to poor soil conditions. Send it to us and we’ll tell you if the soils can be improved with Geopier technology – and if so, how it can be done and how much it will cost.  We also have micro pile and helical pile solutions for sites where ground improvement is not feasible.

Value Engineering
Cost overruns with your current approaches? We want to collaborate with you, find out what your needs really are, and tailor a solution that delivers value and solid support.

Sustainability Evaluation
Tired of “green washing?” We fix your soils in place, often with recycled materials, and with methods that expend much less fossil fuel.

Schematic Design
Want to see what the ground improvement layout will look like, or how we calculate settlement and bearing capacity? We’ll be happy to show you so that you’re confident moving ahead.

Budget Estimating
A construction project can’t get the go-ahead without scope and expense. We’ll strive to give you an estimate and design you can use to negotiate a purchase price or proposal.

Engineering Deliverables
Our local geotechnical engineers use the latest CAD technology to provide detailed ground improvement plans. Moreover, our engineering calculations are all in there – in English units – so you can easily follow them. 

 

Other Services 

There are situations when ground improvement may not be the most efficient solution for a variety of reasons. We tackle these issues with design experience with micro piles, helical piles and other foundation support solutions.
