Geotechnical Engineering is a vital component to many civil engineering projects.  It studies the behavior of soils under the pressure of forces applied by a structure, or natural elements, and determines the physical and chemical properties of the soils.  You will most likely need a geotechnical engineer if your project involves any of the following:

  • Building Foundation
  • Retaining Wall
  • Access Road and / or Parking Lot
  • Landfill Site
  • Temporary Excavation Support
  • Earth Dams
  • Clay Liners
  • Slope Stability
