Founded in 2004, UMA Geotechnical Construction specializes in geotechnical solutions, designing and constructing underground shoring systems, ground improvement projects, and deep foundations for new construction, existing buildings, and heavy highway projects. UMA is also experienced with design-build projects for owners and government entities.

Team UMA works with civil, geotechnical, and structural engineers; general contractors; civil and site utility contractors; government agencies including Departments of Transportation, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers; commercial real estate developers, owners, and property managers; and insurance agents.

Located in Colfax, NC, UMA is proud to have built its team to more than 75 members. All companies are only as good as the people who work together towards a common goal, and UMA would not be who it is today without its fantastic and talented people. A Service-Disabled Veteran Owned-Small Business (SDVOSB), Team UMA will always get the job done right using unique foundation equipment, high-quality materials, and a team of employees with the proper training and grit, and determination.

UMA team members designed and constructed the I77 hot lanes project, which runs from lake Norman to downtown Charlotte, in all the project stretched over 26 miles. Additionally, we are working on the largest design build soil nailing project NCDOT has ever let in Asheville, NC, on the I-26 widening project.

Recently, UMA was recognized by the Triad Business Journal with the Fast 50 award as one of the 50 fastest growing businesses in the Triad. Our projects have also been featured in numerous trade publications, including Equipment Journal, ADSC, Shotcrete Magazine, and many others.
