At Renaissance Geotechnical Engineering, we strive to provide effective solutions for your geoetechnical engineering evaluation needs. With our vast experience in the industry, we pride ourselves in the excellent projects we have completed.


What We Do

  • Field Services (Subsurface Investigation)
  • Laboratory Services
  • Geotechnical Engineering and Reporting
  • Construction Special Inspection and Testing
  • Construction Administration


We specialize in providing expert level and cost-effective subsurface investigation and geotechnical evaluation of soils and rocks. Our team is also experienced in pavement management, slope stability, pile foundations, and dam inspections through the use of non-destructive testing.
