BHATE offers geotechnical and environmental drilling services which are flexible and designed to meet the client’s individual needs. We provide cost-effective, reliable, quality driven solutions for drilling services. We view drilling as one of the most important first steps in subsurface analysis. To control quality and meet schedules, BHATE owns and operates our own drilling fleet.
We have both truck mounted and adverse train drilling rigs, support trucks, trailers, water tanks, off road moving mats and low clearance drills for limited height and indoor work. We do angle drilling and are specialists in karstic and sinkhole prone geologic formation.
Our drilling team includes professional geologists and licensed drillers who are registered throughout the southeastern United States. Our drilling personnel undergo the training and medical monitoring requirements of OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120. All our crewmembers are DOT regulated professional drivers and two have CDL “A” licenses. We are experienced and trained to US Coast Guard standards for work in Navigable US Waterways.
