Geotechnical Services Help Resolve Questions for Companies & Property Owners across Chicago and Northern Illinois


The environmental consulting experts at EC2 provide decades of geotechnical services and experience to identify and solve complex site assessments.

Geotechnical services can encompass and answer a wide range of concerns about the subsurface of a property. These services are often called upon during the sale of land or during the development or redevelopment of real estate. A geotechnical site assessment can help determine risks associated with groundwater, soil and other types of environmental contamination.

Often lenders involved with property transactions require geotechnical services to help assess any potential liability issues that may arise due to any contamination on the property. When lenders require these services it is typically known as a Phase 1, or an environmental due diligence survey.

These geotechnical services involve inspecting the property and any nearby properties that could cause contamination issues on, or below, the property in question. It is imperative that a highly qualified individual be utilized to perform these types of services.

In Northern Illinois and the greater Chicago area both lenders and experienced real estate professionals have come to rely on the services of EC2, Inc (ec2) for their geotechnical needs. The environmental consulting and inspection service providers at ec2 provide complete Phase 1 and II environmental surveys and provide extensive soil, groundwater and air testing services.
