Since 1976 McPhail Associates has been providing geotechnical engineering services to architects, owners, contractors, institutions, and developers. Over the years our services have expanded to include geoenvironmental, geothermal energy and below-grade waterproofing consultation. In addition, we offer a wide variety of contractor support services including design of temporary excavation support systems, pile foundations, and construction dewatering systems. We remain true to the vision of our founder, Robert E. McPhail, and continue to be creative, practical, respected problem solvers, always keeping our clients’ best interest in mind.
Our professional staff have degrees in civil engineering, geotechnical engineering, environmental engineering, environmental science or geology and have a broad base of geotechnical and geoenvironmental experience in subsurface explorations, geotechnical analysis, foundation design, geoenvironmental site evaluation and remediation, design of excavation support systems, geotechnical instrumentation and construction monitoring.
McPhail has a strong family-like culture that is fostered by weekly informal social gatherings, regular in-house knowledge sharing sessions, and annual summer and winter company-wide outings. Our culture has produced a close-knit group of employees who collaborate daily with each other and with architects, engineers and contractors working toward a shared goal of a successful project for all involved.
