Earthquake Engineering

Seismic performance has always been a key design issue in high seismicity areas and is growing in other areas that have not been traditionally known for earthquakes.

Our geotechnical engineers routinely provide seismic site classification services that include using geophysical shear wave velocity test methods for more reliable site classification. We can also perform seismic site response analyses to develop site specific ground motions for sensitive structures and/or areas with weak soils. Our engineers use the most current analyses with respect to liquefaction and seismic stability of foundations, retaining walls, slopes, and other structures.
