With our headquarters office in Edmonton, Alberta, we provide services throughout Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Northwest Territories.
Dr. Mohammadali Kia, P.Eng., incorporated Alpha Adroit Engineering Ltd in Alberta, Canada in 2013. Dr. Mohammed Rahman, P.Eng., and Dr. Jamshid Sadr Karimi (Professor Emeritus) joined Alpha Adroit's core geotechnical team in 2015. Alpha Adroit purchased state of the art field and laboratory testing equipment including also a fleet of nuclear density gauges, advanced in-situ and laboratory soil and concrete testing, and geotechnical instrumentation capabilities. In 2015, Alpha Adroit purchased all the tangible and intangible assets that belonged to Coffey Geotechnics Inc in Calgary. Coffey International (Australia) had acquired Geo-Engineering Ltd and Shaheen and Peaker (S&P Geo-Engineering and Geo-Canada) and established Coffey Geotechnics Inc in Canada in 2008. Coffey International had made a reputation for its major international projects such as foundation design works for the tallest skyscraper in the world (Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE). The project archives and other intellectual property (know-how) that Alpha Adroit acquired in 2015 include projects that date back to the 1940s (such as Norman Wells Pipeline in Canada).
We provide a wide range of services in the following fields: Geotechnical Engineering; Materials Testing and Construction Quality Control including QA/QC inspections, field and laboratory soil testing, concrete testing, and materials engineering; and specialty Environmental Engineering services such as environmental site assessments, environment restoration, geoenvironmental remediation, contamination cleanup, and environmental protection.
Alpha Adroit's geotechnical engineering services mainly focus on site-investigation and soil characterization, rock and soil slope stability analysis, landslide remediation, footing and deep foundations (piles) in soils and rocks, rock sockets, inspection of soil-fill and rock-fill embankments, geotechnical instrumentation, soil compaction testing and monitoring, analysis of soil-structure interaction, earth retaining structures, excavation and shoring in soils and rocks. Further, Alpha Adroit offers numerical soil mechanics, ground improvement technologies for problematic soils, design and analysis of soil structures, unsaturated soil mechanics, permafrost and frozen ground engineering, failure investigation (forensic geotechnical engineering and expert witness), foundation repair, directional drilling, river crossings, pipelines, dams, bridges, and pavement design.
We also provide routine and advanced testing for soil, rock, aggregate, structural concrete, cement, plastic concrete, zero-slump concrete, light-weight concrete, grout concrete, mortar, shotcrete, soil-cement, roller-compacted concrete (RCC), and asphalt concrete. We can conduct the routine tests per required ASTM, CSA, ACI, AASHTO, and BSI standards. Our Edmonton testing laboratory is one of the most advanced labs in Western Canada for soil and concrete testing.
Our other routine services include geotechnical pile inspection, footing inspection, and bearing capacity inspection for residential, commercial, and industrial buildings throughout Alberta. We serve Red Deer and Fort McMurray through our central office in Edmonton.
At Alpha Adroit, we see our calling as a way of life, with our primary goal being the opportunity to serve the communities we operate in and provide the highest quality geotechnical engineering and materials testing services we undertake. We embrace and produce new technologies, and we get the job done fast and right the first time.
Alpha Adroit is all about providing excellent quality services, always on time and on budget.
