We use the latest foundation modeling software and design tools supported by infield testing. The advantage of field testing is that more economical designs are available to our clients.

More recently, we are adopting 3D modeling to develop innovative structural and geotechnical solutions. Our design team is also able to assist in economical platform designs to provide safe working conditions onsite.

Typically, our designs will utilize state of the art foundation and structural software, including a suite of GGU software – Rocket for Bored Pile socket design, Wallap for Shoring Design, 3D software including Plaxis and Solidworks.
