Florida Department Of Transportation (FDOT)
District III General Service Contract (1996 – Current)
EGS has provided full service geotechnical consulting services, including subsurface drilling, soil sampling, laboratory testing, and geotechnical design, in a wide range of projects for the District III office of the Florida Department of Transportation. These services have included the following:
- Performing subsurface investigations using EGS’s drilling equipment and staff.
- Field testing to develop appropriate and cost-effective designs for routine and complex geotechnical and material issues and designs. These services could be required during the design, construction, or post construction stage of a project.
- Providing field testing services to evaluate in situ parameters of subsurface materials that impact both the short and long-term performance of the project. In addition to normal geotechnical projects, these services could be directed towards developing alternate design approaches or materials that could result in cost savings to the department or reduced construction time.
- Monitoring of construction projects to ensure compliance with the Design, the Departments’ Specifications, and the project objectives.
- Performing engineering analyses of various geotechnical related projects. These projects may range from routine material evaluations for pavement widening to complex bridge foundation or slope stability evaluations.
- Preparation of design reports. The reports focus on the pertinent issues, providing sufficient detail and analytical information to allow all members of the design and review TEAM to understand the issues and recommended design solutions.
Ponce DeLeon Maintenance Facility
EGS performed a Geotechnical design for the Ponce DeLeon Maintenance Facility in Holmes County, Florida. The Geotechnical Design Included the following:

- Roadway and Parking Areas
- Service Station
- Above-Ground Storage Tank
- Main Building
- Storage Area
- Inmate Service Building
- North Stormwater Retention Area
- Middle Stormwater Retention Area
- South Stormwater Retention Area
- Existing Stormwater Retention Area
- Determined the general design considerations for the:
- Existing Soils
- Fill Soils
- Overexcavation Considerations
- Compaction Requirements
- Dewatering Options
- Shallow Foundation Bearing Capacities
- Infiltration Rates of Each Retention Area
City Of Tallahassee
Continuing Services Contract (1998 – Current)
EGS has provided miscellaneous services to the City of Tallahassee under a General Service Contract since 1998. The projects have included the Geotechnical analysis for the design of culvert extensions, mast arm installation, slope evaluations, base failures, lane additions, and building additions. The services have been executed in an efficient and timely manner with the delivery of a quality product to the City.
The services have also included environmental permitting for projects with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the local regulatory agencies. EGS has provided engineering solutions to various construction related environmental problems encountered during the planning, engineering, and design phase of the projects. The results of EGS’ investigations have been presented in a focused engineering report prepared by a licensed professional engineer.
