Geotechnical Study   

The geotechnical laboratory was founded in 1975, by experienced engineers. It’s specialized in subsurface exploration by boring realizations, in-situ and laboratory tests and engineering with rapport elaboration and advices for geotechnical studies.
Our targets are the different Public or Private Contractors such as: The State, Local and Regional Authorities, Public Institutions, Private Industries and Property Developer, Oil Companies, Research and Expertise Department and the Construction Companies.
