Geotechnical Engineering

Our team has vast experience in Southwest Florida in the geotechnical exploration and engineering field.

Ground Improvement

Monitoring and testing services for ground improvement techniques such as vibroreplacement and vibroflotation.

Geotechnical Services

  • Subsurface explorations using Standard Penetration Test (SPT) borings.

  • Subsurface explorations using Piezocone Penetration Test (PCPT) soundings.

  • Foundation studies and engineering services to analyze and evaluate the most cost-effective foundation solutions, including conventional spread footings foundations, augered cast-in-place pile foundations, driven precast concrete pile foundations, timber pile foundations, ground improvement using vibroreplacement and/or vibroflotation techniques, cement stabilized vertical columns supported foundations, and foundation underpinning.

Ground Services

  • Monitoring vibroreplacment or vibroflotation operations designed to achieve ground improvement prior to construction of conventional shallow foundation systems.  This consists of inserting a large vibrating probe into the ground, and replacing lost soil volume resulting from consolidation with either sand (vibroflotation) or stone columns (vibroreplacement).
  • Post-improvement verification testing using the piezocone penetration test method, in order to verify that the anticipated level of improvement has been attained.

Vibration Monitoring

The professional staff at YPC Consulting Group, P.L. possesses the equipment and technical expertise to monitor vibrations resulting from any source.

Foundations

Pile installation, monitoring, and testing services for deep pile foundation systems

Vibration Services

  • Subsurface explorations using Standard Penetration Test (SPT) borings.
