Geotechnical Engineering Services From AB Consultants, Inc.

AB Consultants has engineers and geologists with significant experience in all aspects of geotechnical engineering. From subsurface drilling over land and water to investigating failed foundations, slopes and retaining structures, our geotech department has the expertise and knowledge to perform a range of services within this field.

AB’s Geotechnical Engineering Services in Baltimore, Washington and Surrounding Areas

Our firm’s expertise in geotechnical investigations encompasses subsurface soil drilling, non-destructive testing, and the determination of geophysical conditions and seismic parameters of a given site.

Specific geotechnical engineering services from AB can include anything related to:

  • Subsurface investigations
  • Pavement condition surveys
  • Mechanically stabilized earth-retaining structures
  • Pavement design
  • Foundation design
  • Ground-improvement measures
  • Protection against landslides and rock fall
  • Evaluation of karst topography and abandoned underground mines
  • Geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring services
  • Movement detection surveys
  • Groundwater and soil contamination and remediation
  • Environmental impact studies
  • Wetland delineations
  • Materials sampling and testing

We have experience with geotechnical projects that involve subsurface drilling over land and water. Our team will determine the bearing conditions and depths of existing piles, as well as the bearing capacity of shallow and deep foundation-bearing materials.

Other examples of AB’s geotechnical engineering experience and capabilities include:

  • NDT determination of bedrock depths and profile utilizing Smarteis R24
  • Investigation of failed foundations, slopes and retaining structures
  • Determination of site parameters for the design of stormwater management facilities
  • Boring Log Preparation using gINT 6.0
  • Plan production for geotechnical engineering projects for ground and foundation improvements in MicroStation 2004

Our In-House Materials Testing Laboratory

AB is one of the few prime firms in the Baltimore-Washington area that offers material sampling and testing in addition to our other geotechnical engineering services. Our in-house material testing laboratory for concrete, soil, asphalt and aggregate allows us to offer our clients this unique package deal.

After laboratory testing is complete, our geotechnical staff enters the results into computer software for preparation of boring logs, sieve analysis graphs, moisture content curves and analysis for slope stability, pile capacity, ground-bearing capacity, embankment, pavement design and strength evaluation.

For material testing, AB makes use of their In-House AASHTO Accredited Laboratory in Lanham, Maryland.
