Geotechnical engineering for rail

To build a solid foundation, you need to know what’s beneath the surface. Our team digs deep for geotechnical solutions to your rail projects. We have completed many diverse and challenging geotechnical and geoscience projects, including bridge replacements, intermodal expansions, industrial site developments and capacity expansions on sidings and mainline track. Our geotechnical engineers have worked on more than 700 railroad bridges across the U.S., and we’ve provided geotechnical services for Class I railroads, including BNSF Railway Co., Union Pacific Railroad, Norfolk Southern Corp., Canadian National Railway Co., Kansas City Southern Railway Co. and CSX Corp.   

We provide you with services including:

  • subsurface investigations
  • planning and studies
  • geotechnical analysis and assessments
  • foundation engineering
  • retaining wall design
  • design documents and specifications
  • value engineering
  • construction contract administration
  • quality control
  • corresponding civil engineering services, such as transportation, structural, water resources, municipal and site development
