Pollak Engineering Inc., provides geotechnical and geological consulting services for a broad range of soil conditions, including hillside construction, ancient and current landslides, bay mud, liquefiable, expansive and compressible soil, high groundwater, seeps, and old fill.

We perform site, foundation and drainage assessments for realtors, contractors, developers, and homeowners including soil reports, soil investigations, slope stability analyses, and site consultations for projects ranging from simple foundation and pavement repairs to large residential and commercial developments including multi-story construction with underground parking.

Our services include on-site reconnaissance with you and your client to address items such as uneven floors, cracked walls, sticking windows, distressed retaining walls, broken foundations and any other item of concern.

Our on-site reconnaissance is conducted by a licensed engineer or geologist and will give your client a professional perspective regarding the present condition of the site, and expectations of future performance.
