When starting a project how often do you bring your geotechnical engineer and environmental consultant to the same table? This approach is often overlooked but with some forethought, you can save significant time, money and improve project results if you combine environmental and geotechnical investigations on your next project.
Watch our environmental consulting and geotechnical engineering experts Jackie Dylla, CHMM and Josh Kirk, PE, dive into how combining environmental and geotechnical investigations can enhance your project during planning and site development phases.
Learn more about:
- Getting the most out of your soil borings on projects
- When geotechnical recommendations have environmental implications and when environmental recommendations can have geotechnical ramifications
- How planning in advance with two complementary disciplines will enhance project outcomes
- Case studies on projects that have included both disciplines from the outset and resulting project benefits
