AKRF’s engineers are experienced in providing direction and on-site monitoring of explorations to determine subsurface conditions for use in foundation design and construction-related activities.
Our engineers provide expertise early in a project by reviewing and processing soil, bedrock, and groundwater data collected in the field, and using these data to help evaluate appropriate foundation alternatives.
AKRF is registered as a New York City Department of Buildings Special Inspection Agency to provide oversight during the subsurface exploration aspects of a project.
Our scope of work generally includes:
- Preparation of the subsurface exploration program, including preliminary boring layout and laboratory analyses
- Continuous oversight of all field exploration work, including logging of boreholes and test pits, classification/description of collected soil samples, and monitoring of groundwater levels
- Summary of soil and bedrock conditions encountered
- Coordination with hazardous materials site assessment and remediation efforts
