Experienced Staff

KC’s geotechnical engineering group has the combined expertise and experience to accommodate clients’ diverse geotechnical engineering needs, such as evaluating project sites, coordinating surface and subsurface geotechnical investigations, analyzing laboratory test results, evaluating critical design parameters, recommending optimum foundation design based on client requirements, seismic site evaluation and liquefaction potential, and alternate foundation design and ground improvements.

Stability Solutions

KC focuses on the preparation and documentation of geotechnical work that, depending on the needs of the project, may include creating geotechnical work plans and various reports, such as Geotechnical Baseline Reports and Foundation Design Reports. KC’s engineers hold quality control in the utmost regard and have extensive experience in providing stable foundation solutions for various structures including bridges; highways; buildings; waterfront structures; retaining, MSE, and modular walls; and underpinning of existing structures. KC’s geotechnical and structural engineers provide effective foundation designs ranging from conventional spread footings to pile foundations and drilled shafts. Additionally, we can provide innovative solutions using helical piles, soil nails, and soil anchors based on project requirements. We have the knowledge to implement the appropriate design, analysis, and installation solutions that lead to a reliable finished product while considering client needs as well as each project’s unique site conditions, schedule, and cost.
