Geotechnical Engineering & Materials Testing

Shaping our communities on solid ground

We are builders and designers, engineers and scientists. You’ll find us in the office, on site, and in the lab. Our life-cycle approach to geotechnical services means that wherever structures make contact with the ground, we’re there to help create solutions for you with clarity and precision. We’re driven by a simple purpose: to make the communities we serve stronger and safer, now and in the future, for everyone. Read More

It’s my priority to work closely with clients to develop realistic and cost-effective solutions to complex engineering problems.

From the (underwater) ground up

How do you optimize a significant expansion to one of Canada’s critical container ports? With a Stantec marine geotechnical investigation.

One of the most challenging tunnel projects in the world

Located primarily in the tertiary sedimentary rock of the muddy creek formation, the tunnel had to withstand a full 17 bar pressure. The tunnel boring machine was required to change between pressurized and unpressurized modes, and tunnel through rock, soil, and mixed face conditions. It traversed three miles of solid rock and came within less than an inch of the center of its target while setting the record for current tunnel boring machine technology.
