Geotechnical Engineering – Stupa Site 1

Before a building project ever breaks ground, a geotechnical engineer, in our case Western Technologies Inc., evaluated site subsurface conditions and provided information for foundation design, slope or any other ground modifications that may be required. The engineers did 1 test boring to a depth of 15 feet below the existing site grades.



The purpose of the geotechnical engineering services will be to evaluate the subsurface conditions to provide recommendations and/or discussion for the following:

  • Foundation design parameters, including types, depths, allowable bearing
    capacities, and estimated settlements
  • Lateral earth pressures
  • Earthwork, including site preparation, fill placement, and suitability of existing soils for fill materials
  • Drainage
  • Seismic considerations
  • Corrosivity
  • Excavation conditions
  • Cut and fill slopes
  • Slabs-on-grade
