geotechnical engineering and materials testing servicesThe H-P/Kumar staff experience and extensive geotechnical engineering, engineering geology, construction observation and materials testing and environmental services capabilities allow us to provide effective services on a wide variety of projects. These include soil investigations for building foundations, mining facilities, roads, airfields, pipelines, transmission towers, earthworks, dams, and other civil works. Geologic hazard assessment experience includes slope stability, debris flow, snow avalanche, rockfall, sinkhole and mine subsidence. We believe it is important to follow through with construction observations and testing; therefore, we offer construction quality control which includes earthwork, concrete, steel, fireproofing and asphalt testing, laboratory materials testing and site observations by engineers.

Developing and maintaining client loyalty is our primary goal. This involves understanding client needs, project details, and site conditions; effective communication is an essential part of this service. Even though geotechnical engineering has advanced into this highly technical era, much of what we do is basic and the experience factor makes the difference.
