"We had a major local transportation project where a structure had to be constructed over poor soil conditions.  Because of past experience with EBS, I suggested them to the structural engineers.  EBS was able to provide a design and construction timeline that allowed the structure to be built, and kept the project schedule on track."

Principal/Consulting Engineer, Patriot Engineering Ltd.

“EBS is a fantastic resource for reliable information during design and executes without fail on construction sites. They have provided design assistance and pile installation on more than a dozen of my projects—from a couple of piles to support a new column in an existing basement, to the complete foundation system of a large waterfront pavilion—and every one of them went smoothly, regardless of the challenges encountered on site.

EBS has the theoretical knowledge and experience, backed up by testing in the field, to instil complete confidence that the job will be done right—and then they follow through in construction, every time.”

Hesham E.

"Not only does EBS provide the highest quality of work, working with them is a breeze. All the way from the project manager’s doing the designs, to the crews on site putting steel in the ground. When it comes to micropiles or helical piles, they are my first and only call. Anytime I mention EBS, the usual response is “they did a great job on this tricky site I had…” That tells me that they are doing something right."

William L., P.Eng.

Project Engineer, Geotechnical Services, Peto MacCallum Ltd.

“The design team at EBS Geostructural has always been able to provide me with cost-effective solutions for deep foundation alternatives.  Whether it is a 100 m2 slab-on-grade building or a heavily loaded rail bridge the team is able to review the subsurface stratigraphy and provide design recommendations on different suitable foundation alternatives in a timely manner.  If you have a difficult site (whether it be soil or structure type), I would highly recommend talking to EBS about non-traditional deep foundation solutions.”

“In the plus 15 years that I have been in the structural engineering realm, EBS Geostructural has always been the go-to geostructural engineer and supplier for alternative deep foundations solutions.

EBS Geostructural is at the forefront of leadership and growth in the industry.  They provide in-house engineering seminars, on-site construction demonstrations and monthly newsletters advocating their profession and engineered solutions to historical engineering project problems.

With the increasing amount of complex architecture, and thus structural designs, having EBS as part of the project team is having another sharp tool in the toolbox.  They can render complicated and expensive foundations, simplistically and cost-effectively.”

Craig N., P.Eng.

Associate, Engineering Link Inc.

"Having been involved in geotechnical investigations for communication towers for almost 30 years, helical piers are sometimes the only solution that would work on certain sites, whether due to subsurface conditions or space constraints. EBS is a company that can do it all: design, install and guarantee their work. And always with professionalism."
