Foundation Engineering

As a foundation engineering team, we conduct foundation damage inspections and provide investigation reports including professionally drawn contour maps that outline our findings. Often times, we are able to reduce the amount of work to what is essentially needed from a professional engineer’s expert point of view rather than the perspective of a foundation repair salesperson on commission.. We ultimately save our customers a considerable amount of money. We specialize in Residential Foundation engineering and Commercial Foundation engineering in Colorado. We will give each home the individual attention it needs. Our job is not finished until our customers are satisfied. Our engineers have construction experience and are experts in all aspects of foundation engineering for residential and commercial projects. We develop cost-effective approaches to large- and small-scale projects utilizing existing data, understanding of local geology, state-of-the art subsurface data collection, and analyses tools, and innovative design methods. Our engineers have earned the trust of our clients by providing constructible design solutions for shallow and deep foundation designs and ground improvements.

Foundation Engineering

Foundation and substructure construction, especially in urban areas, has the potential to carry significant risks and incur elevated costs. Issues such as damage to adjacent structures or infrastructure are becoming increasingly common on inner city sites; however, it is possible to engineer such risks out of a scheme by adopting appropriate installation techniques and construction sequences. We also support our Civil Engineers with bulk excavation and slope stability optimisation, and Construction Engineering with the optimisation of temporary works for substructures. Our foundation engineering experts are knowledgeable about the foundation problems you face—expansive soil mechanics associated with active clays, organic material, groundwater fluctuations, raveling or weak sands, and dissolving limestone can all lead to a cracked foundation. We are also experienced with structural systems and understand how they are affected when impacted by reduced soil bearing capacity or expanding and contracting soils.

As an independent third-party, we have been able to protect homeowners from being over charged for foundation repairs. We have also been able to help realtors sell homes that were once considered to require extensive foundation damage. Greenwood Engineering was able to show the seller and the buyer that the cost to repair the foundation was much less than originally thought or told by the foundation repair company. Our foundation engineering specialists are trained to visually inspect the interior and exterior of a structure and its terrain to gather the data and clues necessary to identify the cause of the damage. We conduct foundation damage inspections and provide investigation reports including professionally drawn contour maps that outline our findings. Often times, we are able to reduce the amount of work to what is essentially needed from a professional engineer’s expert point of view rather than the perspective of a foundation repair salesperson on commission..

Foundation Engineering

We understand the many factors that contribute to a geologic or subsurface event and the consequences that may result Geenwood Engineering has a multidisciplinary team that includes not only geotechnical and structural experts but also professionals experienced in fields such as geology, environmental science and groundwater hydrology. After conducting field studies, Our team can develop remedial measures to stabilize or repair an affected structure and oversee implementation of those measures. Our team will provide the foundation engineering analysis you need. Our clients include commercial developers, municipalities, school districts, and insurers.
