BHATE offers geotechnical and environmental drilling and subsurface exploration services that are cost-effective, reliable, quality-driven and flexible to meet our clients' needs and schedules. We view drilling as an important first step in subsurface analysis.

To maintain quality, our drilling team is managed by and field work is supervised by a Professional Geologist.   Our team is well versed in ASTM and AASHTO specification requirements and safety trained in OSHA, CPR and hazardous materials. Team members are DOT regulated professional drivers with some having CDL “A” licenses.

BHATE's team is experienced and trained in US Coast Guard standards for work in navigable US waterways. We can perform angle drilling and karst remediation and have deep knowledge of sinkhole prone geologic formations.

To better serve our clients' schedule, we operate our own drilling fleet including truck mounted, skid steer mounted and adverse terrain (ATV) drilling rigs, support trucks, trailers, water tanks, off-road moving mats and low-clearance drills for limited height and indoor work.
