KC Engineering’s professional engineers and staff help clients evaluate the subsurface condition of a site in order to establish the most geotechnically feasible and cost-effective earthwork and foundation alternative. This involves adequately investigating, sampling and analysis of the earth materials in addition to incorporating our extensive knowledge database from other projects in the vicinity. Using the compiled data, we provide the most geotechnically and cost-effective design solutions while addressing the risk of poor performance of foundations, floors, retaining walls, slopes and pavements. Where required, solutions are provided for mitigation of complex geotechnical hazards such as liquefaction, landslides and slope stability, and compressible and expansive soils.
While we recognize that our professional and technical abilities are vital to the successful completion of a project, we must provide our services while communicating with other design professionals on the team, regulatory agencies, and construction companies.
