Gerwick specializes in structural/foundation designs for liquefaction mitigation of loose sand deposits in seismically active regions.

Related services to this specialization include: assessment of liquefaction risk/consequences, identification of liquefiable zones, and ground improvement to reduce the risks of liquefaction.

Furthermore, we can assess liquefaction potential due to resonance from wave and ice loading on marine structures.

Typical projects include foundations for:

  • bridges
  • artificial islands
  • civil works
  • locks/dams
  • wharves/piers
  • tunnels
