Geologic Hazards

Blackburn Consulting has professional geologists, engineering geologists, and geotechnical engineers that are skilled in evaluation of known or potential hazards resulting from geologic conditions.  It is important to recognize these hazards so that potential impacts to a project can be minimized or avoided. When hazards are recognized, we can provide mitigation and design recommendations.

Geologic Hazards that we commonly evaluate include:

  • Landslide and Slope Instability
  • Earthquakes and Faulting
  • Site Specific Ground Motion
  • Seismic Settlement
  • Liquefaction
  • Expansive Soils
  • Collapsible Soils
  • Naturally Occurring Asbestos Minerals
  • Scour and Erosion
