Geotechnical Services

Geotechnical & Environmental Services, Inc. (GES) has been providing quality consulting to our clients for over two decades. In that time, GES has developed a unique knowledge of area soil and ground water conditions, as well as the requirements of the many local entities that continue to create the infrastructure of the Las Vegas Valley. Include the firm’s responsiveness provided by Eagle Drilling Services’ fleet of drilling rigs and it’s easy to see how GES is highly qualified for a variety of geotechnical projects.

Projects require geotechnical investigations and design if they involve:

  • Unstable Ground
  • Structures (including bridges & retaining walls)
  • Significant Cuts and/or Fills
  • Crossing Wetlands, Washes or Other Soft Ground
