Geotechnical Engineering

CRW is a leading authority on building in Alaska’s unique and varied terrain and permafrost conditions, whether to support larger engineered structures or for standalone projects. Our team shepherds the project start to finish, or any stage in between, whether the project calls for site explorations, preparing project geotechnical reports, or geotechnical design and construction support including final inspections.

Our geotechnical engineers have a robust understanding of the complex world of geo-mechanics in their design with experience working in challenging soil, including expansive, collapsible, liquefiable, and soft organic and non-organic soils, in addition to warm and cold permafrost. Our construction experience has ranged from simple site observations/reporting to detailed testing for pile driving and vibration monitoring.
