You are smart to conduct a geotechnical survey prior to pouring concrete. I don't know of any concrete subs that have one in house. If it was me, I would google "geotechnical engineer park county" to find someone local that might give you some free advice. If there are potential underground springs, they may want to drill test bores to verify water levels. they can also determine the correct depth of the footings and compaction requirements for your slab on grade. Caissons with grade beams may be the most cost effective method. Doug
