When you are reviewing soil testing companies for your next project, look no further than Consulting Services, Inc. (CSI) for thorough soil testing along with all of the other engineering services you need to assure that your project will be done with excellence. CSI, headquartered in Lexington, Kentucky, is a locally owned geotechnical firm with engineering services revolving around our strong geotechnical expertise. We provide in-house environmental services and are known among soil testing companies as providing outstanding accurate soil testing. Our engineering firm, founded in 2009, has offices in both Lexington and Cincinnati. Given our geographic region, we have done work in almost every state east of the Mississippi River, working with a broad range of soil types.
As a soil testing company, particularly with regard to construction, we recognize the importance of soil testing to foundation design and determining impact on structural stress. The geotechnical drilling services performed by Consulting Services, Inc. include soil investigation drilling and sampling. Apart from construction purposes, we perform Phase I Environmental Site Assessments during which we sample both soil and groundwater for various contaminants that may be present. The soil testing methods at CSI include, among others, permeability, unconfined compressive strength triaxial shear, consolidation linear shrinkage tests and hydrometer analysis.
Most building permits require the services of a soil testing company. While this requires work ahead of construction, many construction projects require the soil testing company engineer to make further soil tests during construction to assure that subsurface soil conditions remain compatible with the results observed in the initial investigation. This is a critical step to take as these findings may require necessary modification to the design recommendations.
Pipeline design, pipe jacking, directional drilling and foundation studies are projects that require detailed subsurface bedrock and soil testing. Typically, soil testing companies do this work using drilling borings. When you select Consulting Services, Inc. as your soil testing company, you are dealing with highly qualified professionals. Our drill team meets the International Building Code (IBC) requirements for “qualified personnel” to work on-site during all drilling and sampling: both a driller and a geotechnical engineer. This work is performed with soil boring and all of our boring locations are also located using total station technology for a trusted degree of accuracy.
