Environmental / Geotechnical

Geotechnical Engineering and Environmental Services

As communities become more developed and urbanized, the potential sites left for development bring with them a series of complications that can impact a project’s financial feasibility and ultimate success.  One of the biggest challenges may be the geology and hydrogeology of the existing soils.

Cochran understands that a site’s terrain literally becomes the foundation upon which a project rests and that subsurface and potential unforeseen conditions can dramatically impact a project’s development costs.  It’s therefore critical to offer our clients a full-range of geotechnical services that can help minimize their risk and maximize their project’s potential.
