BHATE Geosciences Corporation (BHATE) provides geotechnical engineering, construction materials testing and environmental engineering services with quality, service, excellence and safety.  BHATE (pronounced bah-tay) was founded on the belief that we will serve our clients better than anyone in the industry.  This simple belief and commitment to our clients' success is the cornerstone of our progress.

BHATE has grown to prominence and is recognized for high ethical standards, as well as technical and problem-solving expertise in engineering applications. These state-of-the-art engineering applications have resulted in innovative solutions and cost savings in construction for clients.

We find the best engineering solution for your project, delivered on-time, within budget and at a competitive price. Our clients recognize that value is not just about having the lowest price.


We believe that responsiveness to client needs is a key ingredient for success.

Our engineers, scientists, and technicians work closely with project teams from the design phase through construction. This assures practical design solutions, enhanced communication and the ability to address complex problems that go beyond typical design issues.

In a specialized consulting profession such as geotechnical and materials engineering, keeping current with technological advancements is essential to design economical foundations and earth structures.

Our professionals draw from past experience and current technology to find the most practical and economical way to get the job done.
