Earthquake geotechnical engineering is a critical aspect of geotechnical engineering – particularly in regions prone to earthquakes. It involves the assessment of seismic hazards, ground motion, and soil response to earthquakes, as well as designing structures and infrastructure to resist seismic forces.
At Tonkin + Taylor, our earthquake geotechnical specialists have extensive experience conducting seismic hazard assessments, site-specific seismic design studies, and earthquake ground motion studies. We also provide seismic design of foundations, retaining walls, slopes, and other geotechnical structures. We leverage the latest technologies and best practices in the industry to provide practical, efficient, and cost-effective solutions to our clients.
Our earthquake geotechnical engineering services are designed to ensure that your structures and infrastructure can withstand the forces of an earthquake, protecting your assets, the environment, and, most importantly, human lives.
