Geotechnical Engineering

Our geotechnical engineers provide valuable input and services throughout the entire lifecycle of a project. AKRF specializes in subsurface explorations (borings, test pits, and geophysical explorations), foundation design, and construction recommendations, and conduct project-specific analysis for seismic design, finite-element modeling, and temporary support of excavation designs. We also prepare all necessary design documents, plans, and technical specifications for the geotechnical aspects of construction.

As projects are built AKRF can review subcontractor submittals and perform Special Inspection oversight during foundation construction. We work with clients and their contractors and construction managers to evaluate site conditions and develop appropriate solutions and alternatives to real-time construction conditions.

AKRF is registered as a Class 1 New York City Department of Buildings Special Inspection Agency for subgrade inspection, fill placement and density testing; subsurface investigations; installation of deep foundations; installation of vertical masonry foundation elements; underpinning; and support of excavations.
