If you think that a “good foundation” is all about bricks and mortar, think again. What goes on below your building is equally as crucial as what goes on at ground level and up. A structurally sound development is nothing more than a poor investment if it is set in inferior ground.

With state-of-the-art equipment and the expertise of our geotechnical engineers, DBA provides excellent site evaluations to ensure that you make all the correct decisions right from the start. It's not uncommon for architects and developers to consult us prior to purchase to make sure they're not in for any nasty surprises later on.  With the ability to utilize Soilworks Software our engineers are able to take advantage of cutting edge Finite Element Analysis to optimize Geotechnical Designs for complex suburface problems and/or obstacles.  Click Here for more information on the benefits of Soilworks software.
