HomeServicesAdvanced Geotechnical Design

Efficient heavy civil geotechnical design solutions are a result of understanding ground conditions through rigorous investigation, an accurate description of subsurface and surface characteristics, and analysis and judgment based on our collective experience in Creating Space Underground. Through the diverse geology of our North American office locations, which range from the glaciated Northeast and Midwest to the swelling soil/rock found in the Front Range of the Rockies, to mountainous alpine conditions and seismic concerns of the West Coast, we have developed an extensive knowledge base of the land around and beneath us.
