Advisian Geotechnical Division
The Geotechnical Engineering Practice in our Americas region, comprises of 45+ engineering professionals with a broad range of technical skills and experience. Currently these professionals are engaged on a number of challenging technical projects. Current projects being executed by this team include large diameter pipelines, LNG facilities, industrial processing plants, oil sands developments, moderate through significant dam structures, pipeline integrity geohazard assessments and marine terminals.
Geotechnical Engineering Practice forms an important part of Advisian America’s Geoscience practice which comprises over one hundred geotechnical, geological and geophysical professionals throughout North, Central and South America. Combined, these professionals execute projects of varying size and complexity across the Americas and internationally.
Unplanned changes in response to unexpected site conditions can represent one of the most significant cost and schedule risks to our clients’ developments. For successful project completion, clients need to understand the site conditions of their developments and the associated risks. Our geotechnical consultants offer a unique combination of extensive global resources and world-recognized geotechnical expertise to mitigate the unique challenges faced by our clients.
