BHATE Geosciences Corporation (BHATE) provides geotechnical, construction materials testing and environmental engineering applications with quality, service, excellence and safety.

BHATE (pronounced bah-tay) was founded on the belief and commitment 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. From our beginning in 1975 in Birmingham, BHATE has grown to prominence and is recognized in the professional and construction community for state-of-the-art value engineering applications. These applications have resulted in technical advancement and effective cost savings in construction for clients. 

BHATE operates from our headquarters in Birmingham with offices throughout Alabama (Birmingham, Mobile, Auburn), Florida (Pensacola), and Mississippi (Biloxi and Jackson) to provide engineering services on projects across the South including commercial, industrial, healthcare, infrastructure, airport/transportation, high-rise buildings, educational institutions, athletic facilities and government agencies.

Our team is composed of qualified and experienced engineers and technicians, environmental scientists and geologists with advanced degrees whose strong backgrounds and experience provide a practical approach to solving problems.  BHATE maintains a staff of highly qualified materials engineers and technicians that keep abreast of current ASTM, AASHTO, MILSTD, and other specifications used on commercial, industrial and government projects.  

Responsiveness to client needs is a key ingredient for success. Our engineers, scientists, and technicians work closely with your project team 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. 

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.
