Making sure people and places are supported on solid ground is the calling of our geotechnical team. We stabilize riverbanks, design heavy foundations, and ensure bridges and dams stand strong. Using our extensive knowledge and experience combined with innovative technologies, we deliver custom solutions that withstand the test of time.

Dam Engineering

Our professional engineers, geologists, hydrogeologists and technologists are highly experienced in the design, inspection, assessment and surveillance monitoring of dams. Our expertise includes earthfill and concrete dams as well as other water retaining structures such as spillways and locks.

We employ the latest guidelines and best practices to ensure these structures are designed, constructed, operated and maintained safely. Backed by extensive experience with projects of every size for a range of clients, we use a multidisciplinary approach to deliver the following services:

  • geotechnical investigations and site characterization
  • slope stability analysis
  • settlement analysis and monitoring
  • groundwater modeling and seepage analysis
  • instrumentation and surveillance and monitoring review
  • seismic hazard evaluations and earthquake engineering
  • seismic liquefaction assessment
  • dam safety review (DSR) and failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA)
  • geomechanics and advanced numerical modelling (2D and 3D)
  • dewatering and depressurization analysis
