Prior to the construction of any building, dam, highway or other structures, geotechnical studies must be done to determine soil conditions at the site and how these conditions will react to the stress of structure weight. At CSI we have engineering professionals with a depth of experience credentialed to do this work and provide sound engineering advice and solutions. Our work ethic is driven by unmatched integrity, professional level knowledge and adherence to standards by a team committed to supporting our clients and their business objectives.

The geotechnical services provided by CSI support the work of our clients from the start to finish of their project. Our qualified engineers will judge conditions and advise owners of feasibility, structural and economic, based upon the studies we conduct on subsurface conditions. This is generally done through soil samplings and laboratory tests of soil. We will determine ground conditions, underlying geology and hydrology, employing geologic mapping and other techniques if needed. Our studies will determine the reaction of site soil to stress conditions and, based upon our findings, we will provide design recommendations. When warranted, we will observe during construction and provide modification if determined necessary.

Clients at Consulting Services, Inc. can rest assured that the field testing process is performed by certified technicians who are well-trained to provide accurate, high quality results. The expert analysis provided by our skilled engineers brings critical information regarding feasibility to our clients. The engineering team at CSI has an average of 15 years experience and it is this experience that brings assurance to our clients that the report we present, the recommendations we provide and the ongoing monitoring we offer allows our clients to proceed with confidence.

CSI has multiple offices in Kentucky and Ohio, providing us with a particularly strong knowledge of geophysical conditions throughout this region. As a result of the quality of geotechnical services we perform for the clients of CSI, we are fortunate to conduct repeat business with many of our clients and we also enjoy a robust volume of business with companies who have come to us as a result of referral from existing clients. While the services we perform can be complex, at Consulting Services Incorporated we place a strong value on communication with our clients in order to satisfy their needs and bring the project in on budget.
