Engineering and Geotechnical Assessments

Projects in western Canada’s mountainous terrain face an array of hazards from rockfall and landslides to flooding and erosion. Our engineers, hydrologists, and geoscientists are experts in identifying hazards and associated risks and providing practical solutions to managing them. For large-scale projects we provide wide-area assessments of hazards such as terrain stability mapping for forest harvest areas, mine development, and transportation corridors. We also advise our clients on how to minimize the impacts on the environment from road building or logging, and help them meet current standards specified in applicable laws and regulations. For projects covering smaller areas we provide site-specific assessments of hazards and risks and offer design solutions for reducing risks. Engineering services are available for key areas of residential, commercial, infrastructure, mining, and industrial developments.
