Over the past twenty years, Geo-Con has evolved from a specialty geotechnical contractor to one of the nation`s most innovative providers of subsurface technology. Our construction experience and capabilities are focused today in three service areas, environmental remediation, wetlands mitigation, enhancement and restoration and geotechnical construction.
Who We Are
From our roots in 1979, Geo-Con has evolved from being just a specialty geotechnical contractor into one of the leading environmental construction contractors. That expansion of services was made possible by the transfer of our geotechnical capabilities into new applications. However, we have continued to innovate and successfully sustain our roots in the civil geotechnical industry. Many of our specialized environmental construction technologies, including shallow and deep soil mixing for in-situ fixation or stabilization and permeable reactive groundwater treatment barriers using slurry wall techniques, were derived from our previous experience with civil geotechnical projects. By design, we have invested our time and financial resources towards the development of equipment and processes that advance the science of our specialized technologies.
Geo-Con has a team of experienced managerial, technical and field personnel to provide specialty construction services. The staff members have extensive educational and practical backgrounds in environmental sciences, engineering and construction activities.
Geo-Con also remains at the forefront of providing and applying innovative geotechnical and environmental expertise and continues to seek out and implement new technologies.
Our construction experience and capabilities are focused today in three service areas: environmental remediation, geotechnical construction and wetlands mitigation, enhancement and restoration. Geo-Con can perform in these service areas as a general contractor, a specialty trade contractor, or in a design/build capacity. We remain flexible to meet the needs of our clients nationwide.
Geo-Con's corporate headquarters is in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Regional offices are located in Florida, Colorado and Pennsylvania. Geo-Con has successfully completed over 1,500 projects throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, Ireland and Australia.
Geo-Con is actively committed to the protection of human health and the environment. We adhere to a philosophy of line management implementation, enforcement and responsibility. All of our supervisors are trained in the OSHA standards 29 CFR 1926 and 29 CFR 1910.120. Further to this commitment, we maintain an in-house Health and Safety Department that provides technical input to line management in all matters regarding health and safety. Geo-Con's Health and Safety Department is tasked to train, advise, question, warn and audit to ensure compliance with all health and safety requirements, both contractual and in keeping with written company policies and procedures. Geo-Con has a proven, effective and thorough program consisting of a written Health and Safety Program; Health and Safety Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs); Health and Safety Supervisory training; and an Employee Safety Handbook.
Geo-Con has instituted a safety program for both individual and project performance. We set corporate goals each year for reducing incident rates. Since the program inception in 1991, Geo-Con has continued to improve and develop new ways to ensure safety and promote employee health. The success of this program has proven its value by enhancing employee protection, improving liability protection, and lowering EMR and OSHA rates. At Geo-Con we believe one of our greatest accomplishments has been the dramatic improvement of our safety record.
