About Us

We are a certified Small Business Enterprise (SBE) and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) located in Oakland, CA.  We offer the latest techniques in geoengineering, geotechnical and earth sciences consulting.  We strive to be innovative and implement cutting edge techniques in all of our practice areas.

We began our company to have the greatest flexibility to collaborate and communicate with our clients.  This allows us to tailor our services for the individual needs of each project.

We actively participate in research and development of new techniques in the earthquake engineering field.  This participation has included publication of numerous journal articles, attendance at major conferences, development of models for use in the National Seismic Hazard Maps and US Building Codes, and leadership in conference and workshop development.
