Since 1998, different types of companies have turned to Syntec Engineering Group in Dallas, TX for efficient geotechnical and failure investigations.


Trust our experienced engineers to investigate your land to determine its physical properties accurately. A geotechnical investigation addresses the site topography, vegetation, geological formation, soil and groundwater conditions, and engineering properties of the subsurface soil.


Without a geotechnical investigation, designing the foundation of your property may be impossible. With expertise in program development, field exploration, field and laboratory testing, and geotechnical evaluations, we can propose the right design for your structure. The design includes:
  • Parameters & Alternative Foundation Systems, If Applicable
  • Settlement & Subsidence Analysis
  • Upheaval & Potential Vertical Movement
  • Methods to Reduce Post-Construction Movements to Acceptable Limits
  • Pavement Design Parameters
  • Retaining Structure Design Considerations, If Applicable
  • Earthwork Guidelines
The Knowledge to Prevent Disaster
Lacking a complete understanding of a property's subsurface before the construction begins can lead to disaster. Prevent problems when you trust our engineering firm for a failure investigation.
Applying Knowledge
The process involves applying our scientific knowledge to reach a conclusion pertaining to the cause of distress of your structural system. Our engineers are adept at performing the investigations for commercial and residential properties, as well as for slope failures and pavement distress.

An Integral Part of Discovery
A failure investigation is an integral part of any discovery procedure involving several parties. Since our company was established 15 years ago, we have successfully performed hundreds of failure and distress investigations for cases involving below ground slab leaks and plumbing leaks into crawl spaces for pier and beam foundations. Additionally, we rendered an engineering opinion for the leak, if any, on the foundation's performance.
