Geotechnical Engineering

Balancing geology and development

GLA has completed thousands of geotechnical projects for a wide variety of clients and facilities, including landfills, residential developments, regional infrastructure, and mine sites. Through proper geotechnical characterization and state-of-the-art simulations of dynamic conditions, GLA expertly incorporates geologic and climatic conditions to produce designs that fit our clients’ construction needs, while minimizing impact to the environment. GLA’s geotechnical engineering competence is evident not only in the long list of projects that have been successfully completed, but also in how well these projects have performed following construction.
