Residential Soil Borings Soil Compaction Testing Structural Foundation Inspections Geotechnical Engineering
Site specific soils information is the very first step in understanding foundation performance as it relates to existing homes or new construction. A foundation is only going to perform as well as the ground on which it is constructed. Most residential disclosures include language stating the homeowner/purchaser should be aware the home is constructed in a potentially problematic geologic environment. There is a significant difference in knowing if a residence has been or will be constructed in a potentially problematic geologic environment versus knowing the actual subsurface soil conditions at a site and how the soil conditions could potentially impact a foundation. ABTS Consultants' goal is to provide reliable subsurface information throughout the state of Mississippi/Louisiana using soil boring data derived from sound soil testing, and/or observational and inspection data, in order to provide engineering direction at the existing home site or potential new home site. The information we provide can be used to make informed decisions as how best to proceed with; the purchase of a new house, the development and construction of a new home and foundation, or remedial measures associated with an existing residence that has been subject to distress as a result of foundation movement. Our commitment is to provide precise information and timely service and to draw upon 24 (+) years of engineering knowledge and experience in the geosciences to provide reliable geotechnical direction in single-family residential development.
