Geotechnical studies

Estudios geotécnicos BarcelonaIf you need to build or carry out a public project, we make a complete study of the characteristics of the land: definition of the typology, size of foundations and earthworks, as well as determining possible construction problems to resolve. At Geoplanning we draft budgets for geotechnical studies tailored to your needs.

Geoplanning offers many geotechnical services and surveys, such as: studies for public works, building in general, geological or environmental risks. Our team of technical experts has the required training to perform an accurate evaluation of the land and issue the relevant reports. Contact us about your requirements so we may offer you the best solutions at a competitive rate.

CIVIL WORKS

Our technicians’ professional trajectory has been acquired within the most important building and engineering companies in the country, which is why Geoplanning has got ample experience in the drafting of reports and in the technical assistance of projects.

It is for this reason that Geoplanning guarantees reports of the upmost quality as well as a high technical level on the civil works projects that we develop in various sectors.
