Engineering Geology

Engineering geology is the application of earth science, including hydrogeology and seismology to engineering practice for the purpose of understanding the geologic factors affecting the location, design, construction and operation of the built environment. NMG’s team of licensed professionals has extensive experience with the assessment and characterization of geologic conditions, hazards, constraints and impacts to a site. Our engineering geologists collect critical site information and work closely with geotechnical engineers to provide recommendations and solutions to the project team at various stages of a project’s design and construction process. These innovative solutions to geotechnical issues can significantly enhance project feasibilities, designs, budgets, and schedules.
