Engineering Services

Our engineering services include geotechnical, environmental, construction materials and construction coordination and management. CSI is one of the most experienced geotechnical firms in business today and our engineering services revolve around that geotechnical expertise. Our personnel have conducted geotechnical services in virtually every area and condition in the Ohio River Valley and in most of the states east of the Mississippi River. Because the conditions in the ground change depending on your project location, you need a firm with experience in that condition. Our experience becomes YOUR solution! Furthermore, CSI adds value to the conventional geotechnical approach by viewing the project as an owner would ask; "What is the most important thing the project is trying to accomplish?” Lastly, because our geotechnical engineers have a great deal of construction experience, we are always approaching our recommendations with value, schedules, construct-ability and quality in mind.

Geotechnical engineering deals with "dirt”, but at CSI our goal is to keep our clients clean from as many of the costly issues, delays and earth-related problems as we can.
