GeoSolv will never force-ﬁt the solution to the problem, and we will always be sure to inform you immediately if another solution might be a more suitable solution, and will always provide you with the lowest risk approach, even if the solution is not one of our own. That is our personal guarantee to you.
Project Delivery Philosophy
The foundation is arguably the most important element for structures/infrastructure; −it is the basis for a successful project. At GeoSolv, we believe that every problem foundation soil has a solution. Our company has worked hard to innovate foundation solutions that are practical and cost-effective. However, if we don’t have the right solution in our extensive arsenal, we will provide you with the assistance you need to find it. That is the pledge of service you get from GeoSolv through every step of your specific challenging-soil situation. We never force-fit the solution to the problem, and we will be the first to let you know if our solution won’t fit your project and provide you with the lowest risk approach. That is our guarantee.
We have a strong belief in a human approach to site monitoring. Although we have a wide variety of sophisticated equipment and technology at our fingertips, we always ensure that every project has a GeoSolv expert on-site, monitoring any challenges or changes throughout your challenging soil project.
Every client and every project is unique and has specific project requirements. GeoSolv understands this, and tailors each project delivery plan according to the client’s specific requirements. Here is an overview of our project delivery approach.
- The client approaches us with a challenging soil project.
- Information is provided, including soil boring logs and perhaps more detail such as foundation plans (or architectural drawings), loads, elevations, site plans, and grading details to prepare a feasibility report or proposal.
- For formal quotations, IFC drawings−including foundation plans, final geotechnical report and other detailed final design information is provided to GeoSolv.
- GeoSolv is in touch with you to address any additional questions or provide clarification, and sets a realistic target for a response, which may be a feasibility study, assistance with geotechnical recommendations, a proposal, or a formal quotation, depending on who is contacting us and the stage that the project is at or the amount of information that is available.
