CTE South, Inc.

Geotechnical Engineering


Effective recommendation design

Recognized as a leader in efficient geotechnical engineering, CTE South, Inc. continues a history of developing effective recommendation design for conventional and complex site requirements. Through strategic planning, we develop necessary site solutions to minimize geologic-seismic impacts on your development. Detailed reporting formats provide the planning criteria necessary to mitigate existing site constraints through practical, suitable, and appropriate engineering design.


Commitment to engineering excellence

CTE ensures a maximum utilization of site potential. Coordinated geotechnical and geological service teams conduct comprehensive site investigations to determine subsurface soil, rock, and groundwater conditions. Geotechnical investigations include the analysis and recommendations for site grading, excavation, slope stability, shoring, foundation design, and design of necessary above and below grade walls.

Our fundamental objectives are a cost-effective recommendation associated with design practicality, and rapid information turnaround for our clients. Geotechnical studies further support civil engineering design recommendations for conclusive land-use planning including road design, asphalt, concrete and paving requirements, site drainage, storm drain, water service, sewer treatment, and septic system layouts.
