CQuest has completed geotechnical investigations for many types of sites and structures:
Commercial and Retail Buildings
Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Electrical Substation Equipment
Multi-Storied Office Buildings
Large and Small Building Additions
Single Family Homes
Geotechnical Engineering Reports
Based on the results of the subsurface investigation and the laboratory testing program, CQuest performs an analysis of the subsurface soils and/or bedrock. CQuest then prepares a final Geotechnical Investigation Report, which summarizes the subsurface investigation, on-site soil strength conditions, and gives recommendations for foundations, earthwork, slope stability and pavement sections.
Additional Subsurface Investigation Services available
CQuest conducts infiltration testing to determine the potential infiltration feasibility of a site, as well as helping the system designer properly size and locate the proposed storm water management facilities. Infiltration testing is performed per the guidelines of the local governing agencies.
CQuest conducts percolation testing to aid in the location and design of onsite wastewater treatment systems, also known as private sewage disposal systems. Testing is performed for the design of systems including seepage pits, leach lines and pressurized drip systems. The location of dispersal systems on hillside and flat land properties are geologically evaluated for feasibility and stability.
CQuest evaluates sites with regard to the potential of liquefaction, including settlement, lateral spreading, and their resulting effects and impacts on the proposed development and provides recommendations to mitigate the effects of liquefaction on the proposed development.
