Geotechnical Services /
WSP is known for its in-depth understanding of ground behaviour - both soil and rock - and the influence of groundwater conditions on design and construction.
Their understanding of geological structures, materials and processes, ground-structure interaction, and construction technologies, combined with the systematic application of investigative, scientific, engineering, and risk management techniques provide practical solutions to ground related issues.
WSP's geotechnical teams work in close coordination with planners, and both structural and civil engineers. They are typically involved in all aspects of a project from early planning studies through to the construction phase, as well as in the inspection and rehabilitation of existing facilities. This approach provides continuity, and allows for the inter-disciplinary collaboration that is essential to the successful delivery of complex projects.
