Geotechnical Engineering and Consulting Services

We strive to provide quality geotechnical engineering design and construction recommendations to help identify, understand, and solve issues — before they become problems.

AET offers complete geotechnical services ranging from drilling, in-situ testing, laboratory testing, and engineering consulting. We explore, test, observe, monitor, consult, and can partner with you from planning, design, and construction, to post-construction maintenance and forensics.

Thoughtful geotechnical solutions to help your project succeed

Our geotechnical engineers understand that one key to project success is “constructability.” By working with our geotechnical engineers, your team benefits from our experience and problem-solving capabilities, and thoughtful recommendations — so you can select an approach that meets your project schedule and budget.

Reducing uncertainty regarding the subsurface conditions and constructability of your project can reduce schedule delays and can lead to lower construction costs.

Large-scale projects with large-scale geotechnical challenges

For 50 years AET has helped clients overcome diverse and difficult geotechnical challenges, often achieving award-winning results. From projects such as major sports stadiums (for example, US Bank Stadium, Target Field, Xcel Energy Center, and Lambeau Field), multi-story high-rise structures, small to large commercial development, major river bridges, and large transportation projects, we bring invaluable knowledge and expertise, beyond the test results, to your project.

Our successes also include buildings, roads, bridges, oil and gas sites, wind turbines, levees and dams, railways, and airports – at sites across the nation and around the world.

Add experienced geotechnical engineers to your project team

We work with many project stakeholders, including structural engineers and architects, contractors, developers, owner’s agents, and government project managers, to support projects where soil and rock properties and subsurface conditions must be considered in the design.
