Phil joined ENGEO 1998 and is a recognized expert in engineering geology. He has worked on a wide range of projects, including residential and commercial grading projects, school sites, expert witness services for litigation, peer review services for city and county governments and consultation work for public agencies and private clients. Phil is the lead geologist in charge of geologic hazard evaluation and geotechnical site characterization for many successful projects covering several thousand acres of land in the California Coast Ranges and Transverse Ranges, the Central Valley and in western Nevada. His responsibilities include estimation of construction quantities and costs, and coordination of geotechnical and geomorphology issues with civil engineers and public agencies. During project construction, Phil is responsible for overseeing geologic construction observation, coordinating geotechnical work with contractors and property owners and interfacing with inspectors, peer reviewers and public agency personnel.
“The most rewarding thing for me is to define and solve geologic problems in ways that both protect the client and maximize the success of their projects.”
