Geotechnical Design

As complex terrain specialists, our team has led or supported the foundation analysis and design of most transportation structures completed across New Zealand in the last 20 years. Our geotechnical team has an excellent track record of success and provide services in geotechnical transportation design and construction, including foundation systems, tunnels, retaining walls, embankments, reclamations, and groundwater management. Recent transport projects where we have been engaged as geotechnical engineers include Baypark to Bayfair in Tauranga and Mount Messenger Bypass in Taranaki, as well as the Memorial Avenue Overpass in Christchurch.

We were engaged as geotechnical design leads on the Waterview Connection and have also been involved as independent geotechnical auditors for NZTA on the Christchurch Northern Corridor. Our geotechnical engineers are currently working on such high profile transport projects as the Puhoi to Warkworth connection and Wellington’s Peka Peka to Ōtaki Expressway. They are also actively engaged in the ICE People’s Choice Award-winning North Canterbury Transport Infrastructure Rebuild (NCTIR) for NZTA and KiwiRail. In addition, we have recently been involved in delivering the Downtown and AC36 projects in collaborative arrangements for Auckland Council and Auckland Transport.
