Appropriate geotechnical recommendations are vital to the success of every project. Preparing geotechnical engineering solutions requires a comprehensive understanding of site-specific soil and groundwater conditions, and the impact these conditions will have on a completed project. MAE can provide the engineering expertise needed to assess construction and long-term performance risks associated with subsurface conditions, and develop innovative, practical and cost effective foundation recommendations for your project design team.
A thorough subsurface investigation is a critical element to completing a cost effective, safe structural design. MAE’s professional engineering staff has extensive experience with Florida geology. We have access to a large fleet of drilling equipment which gives us a flexibility to respond quickly to our clients’ needs. We can prepare a program to explore and characterize soil, rock and groundwater conditions at your site, and provide a geotechnical engineering analysis which will enable your project team to prepare a cost effective, safe structural design for your project.
Brett H. Harbison, P.E. has over 12 years of field, laboratory, and geotechnical analysis experience on public and private projects throughout Florida. Brett has managed the entire geotechnical process which includes the planning, supervision of drilling, laboratory testing, analysis, and reporting for numerous Florida Department of Transportation projects both Design-Build and Bid-Build. He has provided dynamic load testing services using the Smartpile EDC System on numerous pre-stressed, pre-cast concrete driven piles on bridge foundation construction projects throughout Florida.
