Geotechnics specialists optimise solutions
EIC Activities’ geotechnical specialists are leaders in the fields of soft soil engineering and earthworks. The advice they provide, and solutions they develop, can save significant time and costs, and be the difference between winning and losing a tender.
The team’s expertise was recently presented at the 19th International Conference on Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering in Seoul, Korea.
Substructures – ensuring performance meets purpose
Unseen by most of us, substructures anchor the buildings and infrastructure our companies construct and operate.
Built below ground (footings, piles, tunnels) and with earth (embankments, slopes, retaining walls), substructures play a key role in every asset’s settlement, stability, and serviceability.
The science behind the solutions
EIC Activities’ approach is built on technical expertise, field experience and modelling. They look at every challenge from the first principles of physics and soil mechanics to establish strong technical justification, and use advanced numerical modelling to demonstrate that the solution meets project requirements. The combination brings teams, their design consultants, verifiers and clients on board with an optimal solution.
