Geotechnical engineering is the study of the behaviour of soils under the influence of loading forces and soil-water interactions. This knowledge is applied to the design and analysis of foundations, retaining walls, earth dams, de-watering of excavations, settlement of structures and slope stability.

It has been a pleasure working with you on the Sun Peaks staff housing project at 1265 Alpine Rd. constructed in 2018. Being at a higher elevation in Sun Peaks, our window of ideal building conditions is short. Your recommendation of using rapid impact compaction on this site was great advice resulting in eliminating weeks of site preparation out of the construction schedule and thousands of dollars out of the budget. I appreciate that you are one of the professionals in the industry that is willing to think outside of the box using all available technologies to suit soil and environmental conditions.

Thanks to you and all your staff for job well done.

He’s a dependable member of our project team, not only developing affordable earthworks strategies, but also willing to attend after-hours public meetings to help us successfully move through the development process.
