Our geologists are experienced with a wide variety of soil and bedrock conditions. Our approach focuses on working closely with the design and construction team to optimize geotechnical input parameters, resulting in well-designed projects that address geologic and geotechnical concerns while minimizing construction costs.
Geomorphic interpretation is one of the principal tools used by engineering geologists in the characterization of large areas, particularly for transportation or pipeline projects that traverse variable geologic and topographic conditions. It is an indispensable precursor to field exploration and serves to focus subsequent subsurface studies, reduce costs, and improve schedules. The natural landforms present on any given site typically preserve a record of the late Quaternary geologic processes that shaped the land, such as fluvial erosion and deposition, landslides, tectonic uplift, ground deformation, and surface fault rupture. Understanding these geologic processes is critical to anticipating the geologic hazards that may affect a site.
