Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical Engineering from Ransom Consulting.

Well founded. Well rounded. Well grounded.

Clients throughout the northeast rely on Ransom Consulting for creating effective strategies to solve their most complex geotechnical issues – as well as completing routine investigations – on time and within budget.

As experts in the variable environmental conditions and uncompromising subsurface materials that make New England unique, Ransom consultants understand the challenges of breaking ground on a project in the Northeast.

With a full spectrum of services that include conceptual site design, site planning, estimating and ongoing consultation and coordination during construction, Ransom’s integrated approach helps clients better manage their total site development costs and keep construction schedules on track.

Experience. The Ransom Difference.

Ransom’s engineers have a long history of assessing a wide variety of different geologic and urban environments. Based on these experiences, Ransom provides clients with a thorough understanding of the potential risks and offers practical solutions to addressing each one of them.

While no two project sites are exactly the same, this valuable experience can lead to faster site analysis and a more thorough risk assessment. Should similar environmental and geotechnical conditions be identified on a new project, Ransom consultants can quickly adapt and confidently initiate similar tactics to remedy the situation.

An integrated approach – More effective. More efficient.

As a multi-disciplinary firm with diverse engineering capabilities that range from wastewater management to brownfield remediation, and HAZMAT inventory to environmental modeling, Ransom Consulting approaches each project armed with an extensive body of knowledge acquired from decades of environmental engineering work.

Working closely with site development and construction teams, Ransom’s consultants will often call on past experiences to alert the project team of potential issues to be aware of. This heightened awareness helps to minimize the chance of oversight and can also shorten the initial evaluation phase of the project.

By identifying these types of underlying conditions and uncovering possible unforeseen relationships between them, Ransom clients experience both immediate and long term benefits during the design and construction phase of the project.

Ransom provides clients with unique, effective solutions to even the most complex site issues. For more information about geotechnical engineering services from Ransom, contact:
