Earthquake Engineering and Seismic Design

Ensuring safety through solid design.

Adequate performance of structures during seismic events is critical to life safety. As part of our geotechnical engineering services, BLE provides seismic design recommendations including seismic site classification, liquefaction evaluation and seismic stability of dams, slopes and embankments. We work with our clients to develop safe, durable structures that can withstand seismic activity with minimal damage.

We are also experienced in using earthquake modeling software to perform site specific seismic response analysis. This analysis helps us to understand how a particular structure will react to seismic activity.
