Foundation Design, P.C. is a geotechnical engineering firm located in Rochester, New York. We provide personalized engineering services to individuals, industry, government agencies, and other design professionals, particularly architects, engineers, and planners. We have over 25 years of experience consulting with clients in Upstate and Western New York on soil, bedrock, and groundwater issues. By defining subsurface conditions using test borings, test pits, geoprobes, and laboratory testing of samples collected during design, we attempt to limit unanticipated conditions during construction. We encourage our clients to continue our involvement during construction, where engineering judgements, not covered by standardized (ASTM) test methods (i.e., delineating unsuitable fill, proof rolling of subgrades, bearing grade inspections, etc.), are required.

Our holistic approach implements our mission statement: "Striving to identify soil issues before they become problems for our clients." Our high percentage of repeat clients demonstrates the effectiveness of this approach. These clients include national chain stores (Lowes Home Centers, Wegmans Food Markets, Target, BJís Wholesale, CVS Pharmacy, Rite Aid Pharmacy), local colleges and universities (University of Rochester, Nazareth College, R.I.T., Hobart & William Smith Colleges), and industry (Xerox, Kodak, Guardian Glass, Ganett Newspapers).
