Soil boring tests are a crucial first step to any construction project.

Soil boring, also called geotechnical boring, is a technique used to investigate and determine soil composition and conditions at a site where construction is planned. Soil boring companies like Element collect and provide expert analysis of soil samples, creating the foundational knowledge for the project that informs structure design, and contributing to a cost-effective and safe approach to your project.

Element is among the most trusted geotechnical drilling companies in North America, and is fully accredited to provide soil boring and analysis for a huge range of projects. Our geotechnical engineers use trucks, ATVs or track-mounted geotechnical drilling rigs to collect samples for our tests and generate a subsurface profile that measures your soil's engineering properties, restrictive soil layers, infiltration levels and more.

The Element Advantage
