Geotechnical Engineering Services

Geotechnical engineering constitutes the heritage of Wallace-Kuhl & Associates. Our three founding principals successfully built the company on the foundation of their combined geotechnical experience. Throughout the decades since, WKA has amassed extensive geotechnical experience. Our geotechnical engineers evaluate subsurface conditions and produce critically important analytical information that should be factored into the design of a project before construction of a foundation, slope grading or other ground modifications begin.

Clients benefit from WKA’s decades of combined geotechnical, geological and technical expertise. WKA has performed design, preconstruction and construction-level geotechnical engineering services for projects that encompass residential subdivisions, high-rise office buildings, public and private schools and universities, hospitals and other medical facilities, highways, bridges, dams and levees.
