Geology Matters

At Clifton, we know that every region has its own unique geologic history resulting in site-specific stratigraphy, hydrogeology, and soil properties that evolve over time. This is why we take the time to thoroughly understand an area in order to develop truly functional and sustainable engineering solutions.

Senior Geotechnical Engineer
I see all geotechnical projects as unique. The natural processes that create soil and groundwater conditions can be highly variable from site to site, and so each site must be considered individually. By avoiding the boilerplate approach to geotechnical investigations and reporting, we provide our clients with recommendations and designs that best suit their project needs.
