Geotechnical Design Services

Brierley Associates provides heavy civil geotechnical engineering services through our  nationwide network of offices. Through the diverse geology of our 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 a knowledge base of the land around and beneath us. Efficient geotechnical design solutions are a result of understanding ground conditions through rigorous investigation; accurate description of subsurface and surface characteristics; and analysis and judgment based on our collective experience in Creating Space Underground.
