Getting ahead of geohazards
Geohazards are geological and geomorphological processes, phenomena, or conditions that may pose a threat to the safety and well-being of communities, infrastructure, property, and the environment.
Natural and man-made cavities, landslides, floods, subsidence, and coastal erosion are common geohazards that affect millions of people around the world every year. Your communities rely on the safe and environmentally sound development of natural resources, and these hazards make that process more challenging.
Our team conducts risk assessments on both existing infrastructure and proposed new development. We combine detailed digital mapping, field reconnaissance, intrusive site investigation, and instrumentation with geophysical and remote sensing techniques. This suite of tools helps us to assess potential hazards and to deliver engineering solutions.
Our teams are dedicated to reducing impacts, preserving critical infrastructure, safeguarding the environment, and educating communities.
