We exceed what you thought was possible by combining technical innovation with the human element.
Often, what lies beneath your site can create the biggest headaches during your development, infrastructure, or environmental project. Complex soil conditions, community or abutter sensitivities, and environmental impact all need to be considered before a project gets into the ground. These challenges can be compounded when working in dense, urban settings. You need to carefully consider your risks early and identify a proactive approach that will ensure your project is completed on schedule and on budget.
At Haley & Aldrich, our geotechnical engineering services leaders know technical excellence is required when addressing geotechnical engineering challenges. We also understand that some of your biggest challenges may not necessarily be technical. That’s why we focus on delivering not only the highest technical quality, but an ability to build successful, collaborative relationships. We make it a top priority to build trust with regulatory agencies, city officials, abutters, the community, and other stakeholders who may be involved in your project.
We are hands on when it comes to communicating with the community. We attend public hearings on your behalf — city councils, neighborhood meetings, and others — explaining the most technical topics in layman’s terms and assuaging community fears and concerns.
During our more than 60 years of providing geotechnical engineering expertise, we’ve learned that the human element can be as important as the technical.
