Northwest Geotech Inc., (NGI) has conducted business since 1983 with the successful completion of over 8,000 projects. For over 25 years NGI has operated under the same ownership and management group since its founding. This has contributed to maintaining a reputation as a stable, professional firm of integrity. In addition, as a locally owned Oregon-based business, NGI's focus is on serving the needs of the Pacific Northwest and building long term business relationships based on a high standard of work. NGI was founded to provide geotechnical and environmental assistance to private and public projects. As the company has grown, services have been expanded to include special inspection and in-house laboratory construction materials testing. The principals of the firm have extensive experience with projects requiring soils and foundation engineering, engineering geology, and environmental site assessments. NGI also offers full service construction monitoring and testing facilities which are approved by the International Accreditation Service, Oregon Building Officials Association, Washington Association of Building Officials, the City of Portland Bureau of Development Services, US Army Corps of Engineers and The Oregon Department of Transportation. Recognizing the growing importance of the geotechnical, materials, and environmental professions, we are committed to providing practical yet innovative work of high quality. Northwest Testing Inc., (NTI) is a division of Northwest Geotech. NTI was created to provide construction monitoring and materials testing assistance to private and public projects including municipalities, owners, contractors, developers, architects and engineers throughout the Pacific Northwest. The range of projects typically serviced by NTI includes streets and highways, light rail facilities, churches, schools, fire stations, justice facilities, high-rise structures, stadiums, industrial complexes, residential and commercial developments, and wireless tower sites. NTI?s approach to a project is to listen to their client?s needs and then design the services to satisfy those requirements. This approach maintains cost-effective management while ensuring necessary client contact through completion of the project. The people of NGI and NTI believe that they can add valuable insight, experience, professionalism, and project management support to meet the needs of your project. Please contact our office with your project requirements. NGI's geotechnical services are typically managed by direct principal level involvement and coordinated by key professional staff. For twenty-five years NGI has worked with many professional architects and engineers throughout the Portland area and has a solid reputation for commitment to quality, innovative design, and excellent communicative skills. NGI?s clientele includes public agencies, design professionals, construction management companies, and private developers. Many of the projects involve geotechnical/seismic evaluation in support of feasibility and/or design of various public and private improvements. Laboratory and field testing of soil and rock associated with design and construction elements are also provided directly by our office. These capabilities allow our clients to benefit from the continuity we offer from the beginning stage of a project through construction. For geotechnical projects we have found this approach to be very useful. Geotechnical review of final design plans and specifications is another important element of NGI?s capabilities which helps to reduce the risk of misinterpreted recommendations or missing (geotechnical) information. Please contact us today for more information.

More core values NGI provides a complete range of geotechnical and environmental engineering services, materials testing and special inspection services. NGI believes it is unique in the Portland Metropolitan area with its strong emphasis, capabilities and track record in both geotechnical engineering and materials testing. This dual emphasis provides strong advantages to owners because success in geotechnical projects dictates a close link between engineering and testing. NGI’s President, Mr. Thomas Ginsbach, PE, GE, realized this crucial link early in his career as he was performing forensic examinations of failed geotechnical projects. The lessons he learned and has applied ever since are that no matter how magnificent the engineering design it must be correctly implemented in the field or the project is exposed to an unnecessarily high degree of risk. Accordingly, NGI incorporates both design and testing in its corporate structure. We believe strongly that this approach offers the highest value to our clients. Our firm is managed by professional engineers who maintain the company philosophy concerning the importance of quality, accuracy, thoroughness, and professionalism. At the same time we have developed a very strong materials testing capability. This attitude and structure is the basis for our belief that we offer a uniquely strong combination for our clients. NGI has a reputation for following the rules & a strong corporate emphasis on “doing it right the first time."Less
