Geotechnics & Underground Structures

 

The Geotechnics and Underground Structures department has been an integral part of the company since its  foundation. ICE  provides geotechnical engineering consulting for many construction projects including power, commercial, institutional and industrial buildings and other structures; dams, levees and pipelines; tunnels, highways and bridges, and construction-related structures  such as slurry walls and excavation support systems. The underground is often thought of as a “black box,” full of risk and uncertainty. Through expert analysis, design and discussion with our clients, we reduce the unknowns and get projects out of the ground on time and on the budget. Every site poses a unique mix of challenges, such as tight space, neighboring buildings, contamina-tion, complex regulations, community concerns and more. ICE designs solutions that address those unique challenges. ICE offers collaboration in the field of consultancy, supervision, selection of contractors, elaboration of design documents of all stages including its discussion, author supervision and engineering supervision of the works etc. Within the field of Geotechnics & Underground Structures, we provide the following services:
