Marine Geotechnical and Foundation Engineering

GZA’s geotechnical engineers evaluate and design foundation systems for landside, waterfront, and offshore structures.

Typical analyses include pile and drilled pier foundations; spread footing and mat foundations; subsurface stability, and submerged slopes and embankments; geohazards; earthquake engineering; soil-structure interaction; and ground improvement design.

GZA’s comprehensive site investigation capabilities ensure accurate engineering analysis. We design, manage and implement site investigations on land, near-shore, and in below-ground environments, including subsurface drilling, geophysical/bathymetric surveys, and in-situ/laboratory testing.
