Geophysical technologies

Unlock the potential of your projects with our integrated approach to subsurface analysis and virtual design consulting. Our geophysical services utilize advanced techniques, including gravity, magnetics, seismic refraction/reflection, and more, providing a cost-effective, non-destructive alternative to traditional methods. Simultaneously, our virtual design consulting team collaborates with architects and engineers, integrating subsurface information models with building designs. From comprehensive subsurface analysis to accurate BIM integration, we deliver cutting-edge solutions for informed decision-making in design-construction projects. Deliverables can be presented as a standalone subsurface information model or combined with our client’s BIM product using Civil 3D, Navisworks or Revit.

Our Geophysical Technologies Services Include:


Geophysical services offer a distinctive method for assessing subsurface geological and environmental conditions and risks. Utilizing geophysical surveys, we can analyze and map the physical characteristics of both surface and subsurface areas, revealing the mineral, geological, and structural composition of the Earth. These surveys measure various properties like gravity, magnetics, seismic refraction/reflection, electric fields, among others. Geophysical surveys present a cost-effective, non-destructive alternative to traditional geotechnical exploration methods like drilling, well-logging, and test pits. While conventional approaches provide detailed information at specific locations, geophysics provides a more comprehensive analysis of the subsurface, enhancing field exploration by interpreting Earth’s physical properties.

Virtual Design Consulting
Our virtual design consulting team works closely with architects, engineers, and contractors to help integrate and manage subsurface and building information models (SIM/BIM) for design-construction projects.
We provide technology-based professional consulting that creates digital models of building components, project sites, subsurface utilities, and geological conditions. Our designers can use these models to visualize and plan building designs, processes, schedules, budgets, and more, enabling our clients to make informed, real-world decisions about their assets.
Our highly-skilled and experienced team of specialists uses advanced geophysical techniques, surveying, laser scanning, and 3D modeling to combine valuable underground information with BIM to create the most comprehensive and accurate design models in the industry.
Deliverables can be presented as a standalone subsurface information model or combined with our client’s BIM product using Civil 3D, Navisworks or Revit.
