Alpha-Omega Geotech is a seasoned group of geotechnical and civil engineers with extensive local knowledge of ground conditions in Kansas and Missouri. We partner with civil and structural engineers, architects, general contractors, municipalities, and private enterprises to ensure the stability of structures built on public and private land.
Building on Kansas and Missouri Soils
The soil in and around Kansas City is not the same as the soil in other parts of the country. We have a lot of clay, as well as various rock formations in this area, and soil testing can shine a light on potential problems before they become costly.
Land thought to be sufficiently solid can turn out soft under scientific scrutiny and crucial soil inconsistencies and variations may also be uncovered. Only accurate test results can show where adjustments or soil replacements may be needed.
The Value of Local Expertise
Every jurisdiction adopts its own set of regulations to guide construction, maintenance, and occupancy standards for commercial structures. Alpha-Omega Geotech has a long history of working with many of the jurisdictions in Kansas and Missouri and that experience translates into big value for our clients.
We already know the local ordinances and building codes, and many local planning and development officials know us and trust our work.
Our team can perform all geotechnical Special Inspections required to comply with Kansas and Missouri building codes, and monitor compliance throughout all phases of construction.
Full-Service Geotechnical Construction Materials Testing Laboratory
Alpha-Omega Geotech operates one of the oldest and most acclaimed soil and concrete testing laboratories in the Kansas City region.
We’ve been sifting through soil and rock materials in and around the Kansas City area for decades and that historical knowledge often allows us to jump-start projects because we know what builders are up against.
Our lab provides insights needed to make critical decisions and our lab manager, Tom Burdick, is a long-time trusted advisor among top area architects and engineers.
