Subsurface Investigation and Design
Chazen has extensive experience with developing and implementing subsurface exploration programs and preparing geotechnical interpretive reports. We work with our clients to develop cost effective subsurface investigation programs to obtain the necessary information to support planned development. We work on all types and scales of projects from single family residences to complex million square foot specialty structures.
Our interpretive reports identify the subsurface conditions, recommend an allowable bearing capacity and lateral earth pressure loads, provide site specific seismic design data, and discuss site development topics such as setback distances, slope stability, settlement and liquefaction potential. Chazen also performs pavement assessments and designs site specific pavement sections.
