GME Testing staff is committed to resolving the foundation and geotechnical-related problems all the way through construction services and materials testing confronting our clients actively, economically, efficiently, and with minimum interruption to normal routine.

We are dedicated to employing state-of-the-art technologies and using up-to-date, efficient resources in addressing geotechnical evaluations and material testing.  And we offers a full complement of scientific and engineering services to solve complex problems with timely, cost-effective, and technically sound solutions.  This involves sampling earth materials and analyzing them thoroughly in a soil mechanics laboratory.  Using the compiled data, GME Testing can assist clients to avoid poor foundation design, performance or unnecessary construction delays and cost reduction.
