Engineering Geological/Geo-technical Services

Engineering Geological/Geotechnical Services

 

The increasing size of infrastructure and civil and mining engineering projects requires a sound assessment of ground conditions for foundations, roads, rail roads, tunnels, canals, dams, harbor development, waste disposal and extraction of construction materials, as well as the environmental impact of such structures and activities. Ensuring appropriate geological input into this assessment is the task of the engineering geologists.

At the Agency, engineering geological studies are performed by engineering geologists and geological/geotechnical engineers and geotechnologists professionally trained and skilled at the recognition and analysis of geological hazards and adverse geologic conditions. Their overall objective is the protection of life and property against damage and the solution of geologic problems.
