Holocene provides full-service drilling and dewatering support to the Architectural, Engineering, and Construction (A&E) community. Our equipment and crews provide drilling and dewatering services during each stage of the construction life cycle. From preliminary field drilling investigations to obtain soil samples for geotechnical design, to conducting environmental assessments or installing remediation wells, to the installation of ground movement instrumentation during construction, our crews support all phases of construction infrastructure projects.

Our experience in these markets includes a wide range of geotechnical, environmental, and construction projects. Our crews and rigs play a key role on almost every major infrastructure expansion or improvement project in the Pacific Northwest. We tackle “the tough drilling jobs” associated with the unique geology of the Pacific Northwest, and our crews maintain a diverse local presence across all major A&E project types.
