Our geotechnical engineers have been designing the foundations of south Florida since 1979. Our engineers bring valuable experience which can only be achieved through practice and with the patience of time. Our geotechnical team dates their experience from the early stages of the I-595/I-75 interchanges in West Broward County to several recently completed high rise structures. Geotechnical Engineering is often times an overlooked part of an construction project, but at SPEC, we understand the importance of getting a project off to the right start.
