At Strata, personnel, resources and flexibility have enabled us to successfully complete some of the most difficult drilling projects under severe conditions. Whether it is something as standard as shallow flight auger borings or a more challenging job such as when we were called in to drill horizontal borings containing a variety of down-hole in-situ testing procedures from a 120-foot cliff, our goal is the same, to provide the best possible information to our clients.
