Engineering Geology

Building on solid ground

The classic tale of the person who built their house on sand and the other who built on rock is a story about engineering geology. Before any structure can be built, engineering geologists look at the suitability of the land through the analysis of soil, rock, groundwater, and other natural conditions. 

Our team can help you with these analyses as well as risk assessments of geological hazards, checking if project sites meet all the requirements for construction to commence. 

We’ll work with you during the planning, design, and construction phases of any engineering project using modelling, mapping, and specialist knowledge to provide assurance and reduce any geological risks associated with your project.
