Soils



The grading of a project site will involve the removal of several inches to several feet of the site soils and replacement of engineered fill that meets the requirements of the geotechnical report. This fill must be compacted to the proper density to provide a firm surface for the recommended foundation.

Converse's soils technicians are trained, certified and experienced to observe the grading operations for conformity with the soils report and to conduct density tests to confirm the proper compaction has been achieved. Each technician documents the day’s activities in a field report which is given to the client representative, our project manager and others as required.

If an unforeseen condition arises on-site our technicians have instant access to the project manager and any other professional staff necessary to answer questions, solve problems and help keep the project on-schedule.
