GEOCONSULT performs geotechnical engineering analysis for a wide range of projects, which include highways, urban transit systems, bridges, buildings, dams, municipal and industrial facilities, residential and commercial developments, pipelines, cut-and-cover tunnels and landslides, among others. We provide geotechnical data reports, geotechnical engineering recommendations, construction specifications, consultation during construction and peer review.

Our services cover a variety of technical disciplines:

    • Bearing capacity
    • Axial and lateral pile capacity
    • Pile driveability
    • Drilled shaft capacity
    • Dewatering
    • Stability of natural and man-made slopes
    • Stability of permanent retaining structures
    • Stability of temporary support systems
    • Liquefaction analysis
    • Seepage analysis
    • Elastic and consolidation settlement analysis
    • Stress and deformation analysis
    • Seismic analysis
    • Soil and rock anchors
    • Soil nailing
    • Instrumentation
    • Ground improvements using wick drains with surcharge, and stone columns
    • Slope stabilization using minipiles and passive piles.
    • Groundwater control
  • Besides our commitment with providing our clients with a high quality engineering product, our engineering staff invest a significant amount of time in privately funded research and development in order to keep up with the state of the art on several specific areas such as:

    • Finite element modeling under dynamic conditions
    • Tomographic imaging based on seismic geophysics
    • Limit equilibrium analysis
    • Low strain soil characterization based on seismic CPT tests.
    • Soil characterization based on critical state parameters
    • Site specific seismic risk evaluation
