Geotechnical Engineering Services

The "mtc Difference"

Spanning over five decades, our team of geotechnical engineers are experienced in a wide variety of projects. These projects incorporate transportation infrastructure including roadways and bridges for both MDOT and local agencies, multi-span bridges, high-rise buildings, power plants, hydroelectric facilities, water and wastewater treatment facilities, underground infrastructure, industrial developments, retail centers, electric substations, and the full range of commercial, industrial, institutional, governmental and residential development.

Build With Confidence

We understand that the ground is critical and complex, just like the structures that it supports. We know subsurface conditions can significantly impact your project’s design, budget, and schedule.  Our unique approach of field engineering reconnaissance and test drilling observation provides a high degree of confidence that subsurface anomolies are caught on the front end of a project.  This gives our project partners better preparation at the time of construction.

Our engineers provide innovative solutions and cost saving recommendations for your project with extensive experience and proven results.  Geotechnical engineering analysis and foundation studies determine what impact the new project being constructed may have to nearby building and infrastructure.  We achieve ”value added” benefits that prevent expensive unforeseen conditions at the time of construction.


Soils Testing and Other Geotechnical Services

We know that soil conditions may vary substantially over a limited geographic area. It’s not enough to be experienced in the field; you need knowledge of the local and regional geology and proven experience with the latest foundation and specialty geotechnical construction technologies. With our experience spanning over five decades across the Great Lakes Region, MTC delivers an unmatched combination of geotechnical services and expertise including our own drilling services provided by MATECO Drilling Company. In addition, our in-house laboratory can provide accurate and timely soils testing. From subsurface exploration to geological studies and design recommendations, MTC provides a broad spectrum of geotechnical engineering services including:
