Geotechnical and environmental issues pose unique challenges to construction projects. Whether the project is a reservoir, detention or retention basin, well, dam, levee, high-rise building, or bridge, there are inherent risks in building structures designed to go on or in the ground. Natural hazards, including differing site conditions, earthquakes, landslides, sinkholes, and soil liquefaction, can affect and result from these projects. Therefore, soil and rock mechanics must be evaluated to ensure the stability of not only the structure to be built, but also the surrounding environment.

 Interface Consulting is familiar with these risks and has assisted various government entities, contractors, and subcontractors involved in complex geotechnical and environmental projects from New York to California and Texas to Canada.
