Excavation projects routinely encounter difficult soil conditions that are the result of long-term geological formation and occasionally man-made depositions of fill materials that challenge construction personnel to adopt innovative solutions to overcome specific site conditions.

Many urban areas are situated near rivers or lakes where adjacent soil conditions consist of gravels, sands, clays and often mixed soil conditions. Over geological time, soils within widespread areas upon which urban areas are constructed may have been deposited on ancient lake beds.

In addition to surface water flows through swamps, creeks and rivers, sub-surface water flows occur naturally through permeable soils.

Peter White is retained by owners, engineers and contractors to provide site specific solutions when difficult soil conditions jeopardize soil excavation work and when unstable or loose soil conditions are encountered.
