As seasoned experts in geotechnical construction, Conte Company specializes in the design, installation, and testing of a variety of structural foundations. Our extensive experience as general contractors gives us a comprehensive understanding of your project’s big picture and allows us to provide insight into why certain solutions may be better than others.
Our deliberate problem-solving approach and extensive geotechnical experience give us a significant advantage, especially on constrained and/or sensitive sites. Conte company specializes in managing complex soil conditions, navigating unforgiving access limitations, building in delicate urban centers with low-overhead, and minimizing impact in environmentally protected areas. We make it our goal on every project to respect the surrounding environment and adapt our construction methods to limit disruption.
Where other companies see obstacles. We see solutions.
Deep foundations enable the construction of large-scale structures in virtually any location, regardless of soil conditions. We offer a variety of methods, including helical, displacement, friction, in both grouted and ungrouted applications. We also employ modern pile technologies such as Drivecast™, when appropriate. This flexibility allows us to provide effective solutions for sensitive sites and projects with limited access, ensuring stability and durability in the most challenging environments.
Shallow pier foundations such as ShearPier™ provide many of the benefits of full-scale piles on a smaller scale. These cost-effective piers can be installed quickly with minimal site disturbance, and are ideal for projects such as fencing, lighting, and solar panel installations. These foundations are specifically designed to meet specialized requirements, such as high lateral loads or adapting to environmentally sensitive sites, ensuring both functionality and compliance with specific project needs.
Our ground improvements provide a cost-effective alternative to deep foundations, utilizing stone aggregate piers to solidify and strengthen supporting soils. This method is ideal for a wide range of construction, including large and small structures, various infrastructure projects, and can be well adapted to a variety of site conditions. We specialize in a zero-impact, rotational installation method which is ideal for sites with sensitive surroundings like hospitals, factories, and railroads. It offers a reliable and efficient way to enhance ground stability for diverse building requirements.

While we do not call ourselves general contractors, we do provide general construction services for projects with major geotechnical site limitations or constraints. In particular, we can provide construction tailored to address poor soil conditions, limited access or low overhead, and sensitive environmental or urban areas. We specialize in navigating these complexities, ensuring a successful project, regardless of the environmental or logistical hurdles. For more information about our general construction services, please contact us.
Elevated structures are specifically designed to address concerns such as potential flooding, transportation congestion, and other infrastructure projects. Our elevated building methods can be applied to both new and existing construction, and are crucial to preventing structural damage on coastlines and other areas prone to flooding. These elevated building techniques are also valuable to facilitating traffic and transportation infrastructure, such as raised rail lines, pedestrian bridges, highway overpasses, parking facilities, and various transit hubs all contribute to more efficient transportation with our communities.
Underpinning is used to reinforce and stabilize original foundations that have become dilapidated or unstable over time. This is essential for renovating existing structures, particularly when they need to support new additions or increased load requirements. We can also address problems arising from erosion or nearby construction, which can compromise the integrity of supporting soils. Our problem-solving approach is tailored to each specific project . We employ a variety of underpinning techniques based on the unique challenges and site conditions of your project.
Our ability to perform intricate construction in sensitive ecosystems extends into wetland developments. We have experience working in all types of wetland environments, including beachfront, lakefront, harbors, marshes, and swamplands and more. We also specialize in water-to-land transition projects such as marine retaining walls, docks, wharfs, boardwalks, residential and commercial shoreline construction, and other areas prone to tidal or seasonal flooding. Central to our approach is a careful balance between construction needs and environmental awareness, ensuring the preservation of your delicate wetland ecosystem.
Through our design-build approach, we can often suggest improvements for your project by evaluating your existing geotechnical recommendations and performance requirements. By having one experienced team oversee both planning and construction, our design-build services can yield significant cost savings and a more efficient timeline. We collaborate closely with highly skilled geotechnical engineers to deliver comprehensive, stamped designs tailored to your project’s specific needs. This integrated approach ensures a seamless, high-quality outcome from start to finish.
Our custom fabrication capabilities include custom terminations and accessories, which are tailored specifically to your geotechnical construction project. These in-house services mitigate the need for expensive and time-consuming third-party manufacturing when custom materials become necessary. Conte Company’s skilled metal fabrication team can perform small-scale customizations in-house, ensuring that your project remains on budget and on schedule, without delays.
Load testing is critical to ensuring the structural integrity and safety of your project. Our in-house load testing can verify that an installed foundation can withstand various types of loads and stresses as per design specifications and safety standards. All of our load tests follow strict ASTM Testing Standards and are monitored by a 3rd-party engineering firm. We maintain our own machinery and can supply stamped submittals for all of our testing equipment, upon request. As mentioned, we also have the ability to custom fabricate testing materials for specialized applications.
