The absence of appropriate and comprehensive knowledge of subsurface conditions, including subsoil and groundwater, can have a significantly negative effect on the geotechnical and pavement engineering recommendations, conclusions, and designs provided for your project. 

JMT has a staff of professional geotechnical/pavement engineers who provide a broad range of engineering services such as subsurface investigations, geotechnical and pavement engineering analysis, design reports, and plans. As a result of our extensive experience with local geologic conditions, we can advise with site-specific subsurface investigations and design innovative yet economical engineering solutions. 

We provide construction inspection and testing services and provide recommendations for design documents regarding local conditions that may affect the overall cost and project duration.
