The federal government, as well as state and local governments, participate in a substantial amount of construction projects across the nation. Currently, there are bids for government construction work being made, considered, and awarded. However, depending on the type of land the project is to be built on, there are often additional building requirements for the soil or groundwater. For example, if a chemical plant is being built, oftentimes the water beneath may need to be treated, something which may exceed the services of a traditional construction firm.
In these situations, hiring a geotechnical firm, with experience in these additional construction requirements, may make a difference in getting the project done safely, successfully, and on-time. For this reason, geotechnical companies, such as Geo-Solutions, are often employed by the federal government to ensure that safety and viability standards are met. If the ground beneath is problematic, it's very likely that a geotechnical firm can fix the issues by merging the disciplines of chemistry and engineering.
