Geotechnical

Weaver Consultants Group senior geotechnical engineers each have 20+ years of experience working on a diverse range of challenging projects. From the native clays and non-native fills surrounding Lake Michigan, to the sands of northern Indiana, to Karst regions of Indiana and Florida, and countless geological conditions elsewhere, our engineers are experienced conducting subsurface explorations for both shallow and deep foundation systems. Our construction experience allows us to engineer custom solutions that are technically appropriate, constructible, and cost-effective.
