Our Approach

Geotechnical Engineering

We have in-house expertise to provide specialized geotechnical services beyond routine geotechnical site investigations, which set us apart from ordinary firms.  

Routine geotechnical predictions can often be obtained from published charts or standard methods of analysis. However, when complex boundary conditions, loading or combinations of material properties are encountered, the classical approaches are severely limited, and the project risk cannot be adequately identified. In these situations, highly specialized numerical geotechnical analysis tools, such as the Finite Element Analysis (FEA), are required to solve the problem.

Alongside peer review research, data analytics, and predictive modeling, these specialized tools are just a few of the advantages we employ to drive innovation.
