Geo-Hazards

Geo HazardAKA provides a comprehensive suite of specialized services focused on the geologic hazards of landsliding, liquefaction, fault rupture, and strong groundshaking. Geo-hazard analysis is a multi-disciplinary field that includes geotechnical engineering, engineering geology, seismology, and risk assessment. AKA is broadly recognized as an industry leader in the area of geo-hazards and typically serves as lead consultant and primary client contact when a multi-disciplinary project team is warranted. Key geo-hazard services that we offer include:

  • Landslide, liquefaction, and fault rupture hazard investigations
  • Probabilistic seismic hazard assessments
  • Geologic multi-hazard assessments for architectural and engineering projects
  • Geologic multi-hazard assessments for public schools and hospitals
  • Geologic risk assessment and hazard management
  • Landslide repair recommendations and design
  • Liquefaction mitigation recommendations and design
  • Slope monitoring
  • Forensic evaluations of geologic distress

At AKA, geo-hazards comprise a core area of interest and over the years we have established close relationships with many other acknowledged experts within the geo-hazard field. Our approach is to augment our in-house capabilities, where advantageous, with experts from appropriate disciplines. In this way, we can assemble a team that is optimized to address the technical, financial, political, and regulatory needs of the project.
