Geotechnical & Environmental Drilling Services



Seaboard Drilling has been performing geotechnical drilling to determine subsurface conditions for over 25 years. Geotechnical testing procedures require measures to be taken to ensure that information is accurately obtained for engineering and design. We are able to employ extensive knowledge of the local geology along with professional drillers to use the correct drilling techniques in precisely collecting data without distorting results.

Due to the variety of geologic conditions on the East coast, Seaboard Drilling continues to grow with a range of drilling rigs and support equipment to meet our client’s needs. With a diverse fleet of drill rigs and probing rigs, we are able to access the most challenging sites. However, Seaboard Drilling understands that geotechnical drilling is an investigation, not a construction project, and will provide the right equipment to collect accurate and reliable samples that will leave minimal impact to your site conditions. A diverse line of equipment on hand allows us to provide support to the drilling operation that will increase the efficiency of most projects.
