A good foundation is a critical element of any successful building project. The professionals at CETCO view a good foundation as one which supports the structural loads - with adequate safety factor – at the least cost. We understand the economics of a development project, and are sensitive to the costs of the recommendations that we make.
During project design, CETCO performs exploratory soil test borings and analysis, and provides design recommendations for foundations, earth structures, and pavements. We apply years of specialized experience by our geotechnical engineers to a comprehensive subsurface soils exploration program incorporating field and laboratory testing. We evaluate various foundation types with consideration for seismic risk and site preparation / earthwork scenarios. The formal engineering report of findings and recommendations compiled by our professional staff is a valuable resource for the project design team.
CETCO's strength is in our diversity. Our professional staff includes marine biologists, chemical engineers and environmental consultants to assist with environmental concerns discovered during the pre-purchase / planning phase of the project. Our broad offering of services and experience makes CETCO an integral part of the project design team.
