Geotechnical Engineering

Clients turn to Geosyntec's nationally and internationally recognized geotechnical and geological engineers to develop projects and services that efficiently use geotechnically challenging sites. We apply advanced technologies and leverage our proven practice leadership to provide clients with dependable, cost-effective solutions and customized services while meeting aggressive construction schedules.

To advance the state of the practice, we conduct applied research and development, often working with leading universities on topics such as stresses and strains on geosynthetics during seismic events, site response analysis, and seismic design of municipal solid waste landfills. Our practitioners have contributed to many guidance documents for various environmental and transportation agencies, helping them create guidance on avoiding or mitigating the potential impacts of geohazards in the built environment.

Our practitioners have developed capabilities and experience in the following:

  • Earth Retaining Structures and Excavation Support
