Terrain Analysis

Terrain analysis involves identifying geological landforms and potential hazards (landslides, rockfall, debris flows, avalanche). It is well suited for conceptual and preliminary planning for linear projects (highways, railways, pipelines and transmission lines) and...
Earthworks Design and Construction

Earthworks Design and Construction

Earthworks projects typically involve the construction of roads, railways, dams, dikes, mines and landfills where geotechnical assessment is crucial to the success of the project. Thurber has extensive experience in terrain assessment, drilling investigations,...
Retaining Structures

Retaining Structures

Urban developments are expanding into marginal terrain and retaining structures are often used to create more useable space. Thurber’s experience includes site investigations, lateral earth pressures, design parameters for gravity, cantilever and modular block walls,...
Slope Stability Engineering

Slope Stability Engineering

Slope stability engineering encompasses the assessment of static and dynamic stability of natural and man-made slopes in soil and rock and the development of mitigation measures. Thurber’s expertise includes identification of landslide triggering mechanisms,...
Foundation Engineering

Foundation Engineering

Foundation engineering requires an assessment of the ground conditions and selection of the most appropriate method to transfer the loads into the ground while limiting the impacts on the local environment. We provide complete geotechnical services including site...
