& Associates provides geotechnicial engineering
services for a wide range of private commercial
and public works/transportation projects offering
over 30 years of experience with Arizona’s
soil conditions and locally available materials.
Jobs range in size from small office and retail
structures to extremely large industrial warehouse
and commercial campus projects and public
works facilities. Public works projects include
major airports, rural and urban freeways,
light rail, water and wastewater treatment

design assistance and recommendations in an
effort to determine the best course of action.
