Nobody’s Soft Soil Improvement Runs Deeper


Since our inception, Ground Improvement Engineering has offered state-of-the-art geotechnical analysis and structural services to land owners and developers, contractors, geotechnical engineers and structural engineers across the Midwest. We also have architects bring us into projects at times.

It’s best to include us early in the planning stages of a project, especially when you are considering options for soft soil improvement, deep foundation support and alternatives to overexcavation.

We consult on a variety of projects that range from agricultural and alternative energy sites to health care, industrial, commercial and multi-family residential and retail. Any project, really, that encounters soft or tough soil conditions — new construction, remodeling or expansion — can benefit from a discussion with Ground Improvement Engineering on advanced options for ground improvement.

Our clients are mainly located throughout the Midwest, and we know the soil conditions because our engineers live and work where you do.

There are situations sometimes when Geopier ground improvement methods 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, too. We can incorporate multiple solutions to support your goals.

'The entire staff was very professional, timely, and delivered a great product. Our settlements have always been uniform and within the tolerances stated in the contracts. We have done over 20 bins with Geopier and always consider using them on all our future jobs.'

Alex Roorda, Construction ManagerHeartland Cooperative (central Iowa)

'For over 20 years in the Twin Cities and Minnesota area, we have been involved in dozens of challenging geotechnical situations in which various Geopier systems have been used to solve site issues, and provide foundation support for buildings and other structures. When a given site makes typical soil corrections problematic – such as deep soil corrections, constrained site access, environmental concerns, organic and debris laden soils, or high soil correction costs, etc.; Geopier Designers have often provided the best solutions.'

'When site issues arise, we have experienced very fast engineering responses, followed by thoughtful, cost conscious (and sometimes flexible) designs which have enabled projects to proceed quickly with a reasonable budget. We often recommend Geopiers be considered for some of the “toughest” building sites.'
