Swift Green Line Wins Award at WTS Gala

On March 7, a GeoEngineers project won an Innovative Transportation Solutions Award from WTS (Women in Transportation Seminar) at the organization’s WTS Puget Sound Annual Scholarship and Awards Gala. WTS recognized the Swift Green Line Project, a new 12-mile rapid transit bus line running from Bothell, a suburb of Seattle, Washington, to Paine Field Airport […]

Legacy Mine Closure: Managing and Identifying your Risk

The mining industry is an essential cornerstone of our modern society. Without minerals harvested from the earth, there’d be no smartphones, computer chips or cars. But in the past, extracting minerals from the ground has been a complex and sometimes damaging process. Abandoned and legacy mines across the United States may pose risks to the […]

If you have additional questions don’t hesitate to contact Morgan or Julio directly through their individual bio pages. Our geotechnical […]

The Importance of Eelgrass: Regulating an Ecosystem Architect

GeoEngineers works within many complex ecosystems, where understanding the influence of each species on the overall picture is often key. Sometimes a single species can make dramatic contributions on the overall health of our natural resources. These important species are often called “ecosystem architects.” Their presence or absence often dictates whether the ecosystem functions as […]

Creating Marshes with Recycled Sediment

The coastal marshes of Louisiana and other states are a valuable resource. Sadly, in many areas they are slowly disappearing. By working together with ports and other industries, we can use river sediment to restore shrinking marshland.

Drilling in the River: Geotechnical Investigations in the Mississippi and Beyond

Reliable drilling investigations are the cornerstone of geotechnical work. The soil data our drill teams gather is the basis of most of GeoEngineers’ geotechnical designs and recommendations. Even in ideal conditions, drilling operations can be challenging and unpredictable. But when we need soil information from below a river bottom it requires a team of exceptional […]
