Engineering has become a very important component of most engineering
projects, and continues to pose various challenges to constructors. The
challenges come in various forms, ranging from construction in areas with
limited shoring options during excavations, restrictions on allowable
vibrations, settlements, high water table, and construction over riverine
areas, or under expansive soil conditions.
professional engineers and scientists have extensive experience in developing
subsurface investigation program to achieve varying desired goals of
geotechnical studies. OKM helps clients evaluate the subsurface condition to
establish the most suitable and cost-effective foundation alternative. Effective
sampling, careful technical review of subsurface soil material from the project
site, and in-depth analysis of local geology provide the springboard for OKM's
geotechnical studies. Using the compiled data, we provide the most
cost-effective design solutions while addressing the risk of poor performance of
foundations, floors, retaining wall, slopes and pavements.
exceptionally strong analytical capabilities. We have established a
comprehensive library of analytical computer programs, ranging from conventional
slope stability, settlement, static and dynamic response of deep and shallow
foundations, and shoring-related routines. OKM also develops proprietary
software and spreadsheets to perform a variety of engineering computations and
analyses. These software programs and applications are not developed for resale,
but are utilized by OKM personnel for a routine data processing and analyses.
