Last week, Scott Anderson, PE, began work as a principal geotechnical engineer in GeoEngineers’ Kansas City, Missouri office. Scott has more than 26 years of experience focusing primarily on dams, levees, earth-retaining structures, and infrastructure like and bridges and electrical transmission or cellular towers. He specializes in numerical modeling and how to use these methods in seismic-deformation analyses, seepage modeling and more.
“I’m looking forward to adding my dam experience to the talented team at GeoEngineers and seeing where it can take us,” Scott says.
From 1999 to 2006, Scott worked with GeoEngineers Senior Principal Engineer Steve Wendland. Now, the two are reuniting in Kansas City to serve clients in the region and beyond.
“Scott has an analytical mind coupled with the ability to communicate his thoughts clearly—sometimes those two skills are not mutual,” Wendland says. “He also provides tremendous value to professional organizations like ASCE, where he helps define design standards and guidance.”
Over the years, Scott has worked on a lot of federal and state projects for clients like the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), United States Bureau of Reclamation (USBR), and state departments of water or natural resources. His experience ranges from seismic and seepage analyses for large dams to designing outfall channels. Learn more about some of Scott’s core services by visiting GeoEngineers’ dam engineering page.
