Geological Engineering

Anddes offers their geological exploration activities for the different engineering projects, applying techniques of regional and local geology, related to geological-geotechnical investigations of the subsoil and geological modeling in the determination of the lithological and structural characterization of geological formations susceptible.

Anddes provides oversight services in geotechnical investigations, through detailed geological mapping, geodynamic and geomorphologic assessments, logging by using ASTM and ISRM procedures, testing and geotechnical-geomechanical sampling.
