Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical Engineering

Geotechnical engineers analyze the properties of earth materials at a project site and evaluate whether those materials meet the project requirements. They provide recommendations for how structures should be designed based on the underlying soils or rock. They also recommend earthwork to improve the ground conditions to meet the needs of the planned structures. Converse’s engineering team routinely provides geotechnical recommendations for building foundations, pipelines, bridges, tunnels, pavement and other structures.
