Geotechnical Engineering

Due to non-stationarity in loads and resistances of geo-infrastructure, it is important to incorporate specialized geotechnical services to provide outcomes that are robust across a range of possible futures. Northgate’s geotechnical engineers have decades of experience in seismicity analysis, liquefaction evaluation, slope stability analysis, creek restoration, dam and levee assessment and design, and expert witness services. We specialize in unique environmental applications of geotechnical analysis, such as slurry walls, shored excavations, open cut stability, building underpinning, soil stabilization, landfill closure, landfill gas control, sub-slab depressurization, and venting system design and construction. This experience spans a wide variety of development types, including low-rise and high-rise buildings, hillside development, chemically impacted sites, landfills, marinas, and wetlands – all of which need to ensure their construction efforts will be resilient in the future.
