Geotechnical – Environmental

Are you in need of these services?

Ensuring the suitability of the soil and other land features is essential to choosing the most appropriate site for roadway, civil, and structural projects. Geotechnical services provide thorough and reliable investigation into proposed sites as well as design services to ensure safe and dependable construction and finishing. Put your trust in our decades of experience in the civil, educational, medical, and UDOT industries.

Take advantage of our wide variety of services


  • Soil and foundation investigation
  • Settlement analysis
  • Shallow and deep foundation system design
  • Slope stability analysis
  • Soil improvement services
  • Hydraulic analysis
  • Response spectrum analysis


  • Phase I Reports (ASTM E1527-13)
  • Phase II Reports (ASTM E1903-11)

Phase 1 and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments involve surface/subsurface sampling, characterizations of underground storage tank systems, herbicide/pesticide characterizations, hydraulic-lift, assessments, and heavy  metals/petroleum impacts.

Other services include lead-based paint risk assessments, asbestos sampling and management planning, asbestos abatement oversight, indoor air quality and moisture assessments, AHERA management planning, noise exposure monitoring, respirator fit testing, geotechnical soil sampling, underground utility locating, and ASTM Tier 1 vapor screening.


  •  Site Characterization
  •  Mapping and Map Interpretation
  •  Hazards Assessment, including:
    • • Surface Fault Rupture Hazards
    • • Landslide/Slope Stability Hazards
    • • Debris Flow/Alluvial Fan Flooding Hazards
    • • Rock Fall Hazards

CMT is familiar with all local, municipal geologic/natural hazard ordinances and we work closely with various city and county officials to ensure that our work meets ordinance requirements to keep your project on time and within budget.

Gather important information about the suitability of your soil

These services are designed to provide important insight into project sites for development and construction purposes. Services include engineering analysis, laboratory testing, field testing and sampling. These are important for various purposes, including:

  • Description of sub-surface soil profile
  • Probable settlement estimates
  • Fill and compaction requirements
  • Foundation bearing capacities
  • Ground water table elevations
  • Pavement recommendations and design
  • Evaluation of slope stability issues
  • Hydraulic concerns

Prepare for potential of settlement

When planning a construction project, settlement is an important consideration. Some structures are particularly sensitive to settlement and the potentially negative effects. Settlement analysis evaluates the properties of the soil and how this soil interacts with the structure to determine settlement risk so we can provide recommendations for structural changes and repairs.

Do you need a reliable foundation for your structure?

The foundation is critical to the integrity and strength of your structure. Ensuring this foundation is properly designed is an important step in creating a structure that can withstand years of use. Trust our structural and geotechnical engineers to provide thorough information about soil and building conditions as well as customized designs for drilled caisson and pile deep foundations.
