H-P Geotech offers soils testing, concrete testing, asphalt testing, and percolation testing, utilizing trained field and laboratory technicians. Our laboratory space is over 2,800 square feet and is equipped with up to date concrete, asphalt and soils testing equipment.
Formed in 1993 by Steve Pawlak, P.E.,C.C.E., and Dick Hepworth P.E., H-P Geotech is a professional services firm offering traditional geotechnical engineering services in a broad range of soil and foundation studies, geologic assessments and construction materials quality control. In addition to the founders, other senior professionals include Ralph Mock, Engineering Geologist, Field Exploration Supervisors, as well as other engineers, certified technicians and support staff.
Our staff experience and extensive testing capabilities in our offices allow us to provide effective services on a wide variety of projects. These include soil investigations for building foundations, mining facilities, roads, airfields, pipelines, transmission towers, earthworks, dams, and other civil works. Geologic hazard assessment experience includes slope stability, debris flow, snow avalanche, rockfall, sinkhole and mine subsidence. We believe it is important to follow through with construction observations and testing and, therefore, we offer construction quality control which includes earthwork, concrete, steel, fireproofing and asphalt testing, laboratory materials testing and site observations by engineers.
Developing and maintaining client loyalty is our primary goal. This involves understanding client needs, project details, and site conditions. Effective communication is an essential part of this service. Even though geotechnical engineering has advanced into this highly technical era, much of what we do is basic and the experience factor makes the difference.
