Geotechnical Engineering

Know what’s below? Unknown subsurface conditions are one of the major causes of cost overruns and schedule delays in the construction industry. DDS stresses the importance of knowing what the subsurface conditions of a site are before construction begins to reduce those dreaded cost overruns and schedule delays.  The old saying of “leave no stone unturned” is not an economical approach to geotechnical explorations, but detailed attention is given to the stones that are turned by DDS.
