and restoration is an area of
expertise for Geo-Solutions.
ince its beginnings nearly 40 years
ago, Geo-Solutions has evolved
from a specialty geotechnical
contractor into one of the leading
environmental construction contractors in
the industry. Founded in 1979 as a specialty
geoenvironmental/geotechnical contractor, today the Kensington, Penn.-based
company specializes in several construction
technologies, including soil mixing, jet
grouting, slurry walls, bio-polymer collection trenches and other grouting services.
"That expansion of services was made
possible by the transfer of our geotechnical
capabilities into new applications," the company says. "However, we have continued to
innovate and successfully sustain our roots
in the civil geotechnical industry. Many of
our specialized environmental construction

technologies - including shallow and deep
soil mixing for in situ fixation or stabilization and permeable reactive groundwater
treatment barriers using slurry wall techniques - were derived from our previous
experience with civil geotechnical projects.
"By design, we have invested our time
and financial resources towards the
development of equipment and processes
that advance the science of our specialized
technologies," the company continues.
Geo-Solutions emphasizes three service
areas: environmental remediation, geotechnical construction and wetlands mitigation,
enhancement and restoration. "Geo-Solutions can perform in these service areas as
a general contractor, a specialty trade con-
tractor, or in a design/build capacity," the
company explains. "We remain flexible to
meet the needs of our clients nationwide."
With its headquarters in Pennsylvania,
and regional offices in Florida and Colorado,
Geo-Solutions has completed more than
1,500 projects throughout the United States,
Canada, Brazil, Japan, Ireland and Australia.
Geo-Solutions takes pride in being a
small company with a big reach, serving a
diverse client base, including contractors,
engineers, law firms and federal agencies.
"We service those looking for practical
solutions to their soil and groundwater
problems," the company says. "Geo-Solutions provides a range of services, tailored to
the needs of each group. Our clients are diverse and our project location range is vast.
We have worked in nearly all 50 states and
