LABORATORY TESTING SERVICES

HGI maintains a well equipped in-house laboratory testing facility at it's Carlsbad office. Staff routinely performs a wide variety of soils analyses ranging from soil classification and determination of index properties, settlement behavior and expansion potential, to analysis of strength characteristics for foundation and slope stability evaluation.

Our analyses emphasize not only determining soil characteristics for site development purposes, but also for other forms of geotechnical investigation such as pavement evaluation, landslide investigation, foundation distress and forensic studies.

HGI also provides soils testing and inspection services for grading and construction operations.
