Geotechnical Engineering is a field of expertise utilized for construction and foundation purposes, as it is the process by which an area of land is determined to be safe enough for construction. Geotechnical engineers take the risks of earthquakes, landslides, rock falls, soil erosion, debris, and other site conditions into consideration while assessing the foundation of a possible construction site.
Unforeseen problems can arise as a result of decisions based in geotechnical engineering, including slope failure, defective construction, groundwater seepage, seismic ground failure, structural distress, construction damage, drainage, underground contamination, moisture intrusion, earthquake damage, impoundment failure, pavement failure, soil collapse, soil creep, erosion, foundation movement, wall cracks, pavement separation, building collapse, among other possible issues. Each of these problems could stem from various sources, so a highly qualified and certified geotechnical engineering expert witness is integral to your case.
As the ability to carefully assess, investigate, and reconstruct the scene of geotechnical error could make or break a case, an expert with a vast knowledge could be a determining factor in the case outcome. This type of case may concern a residential, commercial, or industrial property.
