What is geotechnical engineering?
Geotechnical engineering utilizes principles of soil and rock mechanics for improving and developing society and life.
Benefits of geotechnical engineering
As more and more developments are being built on steeper terrain, assessing geotechnical hazards, such as landslides, rockfall, and debris floods/debris flows, has never been more important. Properly analyzing and preparing for these potential hazards can help ensure the safety of both people and buildings.
We specialize in conducting rockfall and slope hazard assessments and designing stabilization measures for a variety of clients and projects. When it is not feasible to avoid the hazard, we design various systems ultilizing soil/rock reinforcement, drapes, shotcrete, drains, erosion protection, catchments and barriers for mitigation. Our well-established working relationships with specialized contractors and suppliers allow us to provide cost-effective designs to meet our clients’ needs in a timely manner.
Our personnel have also pioneered the development of hybrid slope retention systems,including a patented retention system to reduce the limits of excavation often resulting in significant cost savings while minimizing disruption to the environment.
