Limiting the Effects of Seismic Hazards
Among the first and most critical steps in any excavation and construction project is performing a geotechnical soil investigation. Knowing the soil and rock you’re building a foundation in is essential for limiting seismic hazards. FNA’s geological earthquake engineers study soil samples and draft designs that ensure optimized performance and stability.
While there are many unknowns surrounding geological earthquake engineering, quantifiable projections offer insights into the effects ground motion can have on structures. FNA utilizes earthquake risk assessments and probabilistic and deterministic seismic hazard models to determine earthquake hazards, vulnerabilities, and exposures. The insights allow us to enhance designs and provide practical plans that minimize the likelihood of complete disaster.
As a multidisciplinary engineering firm, we provide our clients with comprehensive solutions for their construction projects. In addition to earthquake engineering, we offer soil investigations, advanced geotechnical analysis, deep foundation, and ground improvement services.
