Support from the ground up.


Welcome to Northern Geotechnical Engineering – Terra Firma Testing, Inc. (NGE-TFT). At NGE-TFT, we specialize in cold-regions geotechnical exploration and engineering, as well as provide materials testing, third-party QA/QC, and special inspection services throughout Alaska and around the world. 

NGE-TFT is an employee-owned company that evolved from a desire to provide project-oriented and budget-conscious services. Despite our substantial growth as a company, we continue to maintain intimate associations with both client and contractor to provide practical and constructible solutions to both simple and complex situations. 

Alaska presents many unique and challenging environments in which to design and construct. NGE-TFT is continuously expanding its services and developing its staff in order to stay abreast with new technologies and materials within the engineering and construction industries. We try to incorporate both time-tested methods and cutting edge technologies to accomplish project goals in the most efficient means possible. Please consider allowing us to contribute our extensive experience in Alaska to your next project!
