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.

Transportation Geotechnics

Our geotechnical engineers have the expertise to ensure roadways, highways, railways and airfields are built on stable ground and perform well in the long term. We combine our geotechnical and extensive construction experience to identify risks early on and develop mitigation strategies. Our services include:

  • geotechnical investigations and site characterization
  • terrain analysis, hazard mapping and route selection analysis
  • road and railway embankment design
  • ground stabilization and improvements
  • excavation and shoring system design
  • cofferdam design
  • constructability review and risk assessment
  • contract administration and construction management
  • earthworks quality control (compaction testing, sub-grade inspection and assessment)
  • blast and construction induced ground vibration assessment
  • foundation inspection and pile capacity verification
  • rock blast design review
  • identification of borrow sources
