Subsurface conditions below grade are often as important as surface conditions. This is especially true when new construction is proposed. Southern Engineering offers innovative and cost-effective subsurface exploration services, tailored to your specific property and budget. Understanding and planning for existing subsurface conditions is crucial for construction of buildings, roadways, parking garages and lots, subsurface utilities and other improvements. A firm foundation is required for any well-constructed project. A thorough subsurface exploration can result in a more cost-effective foundation design and can reduce construction delays and contractor change orders caused by unforeseen conditions.
