CCI’s geotechnical group provides extensive services for use in the design of pipeline projects. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Route Selection
    • Review of terrain, aerial photography and published geological information; evaluations to identify/avoid geotechnical issues that may potentially affect the project; identification of alternative routes and/or mitigate measures for recommendation.
  • Crossing Design
    • Water crossing design that satisfies the Code of Practice – Water Act; rationalization of the proponents crossing method with respect to code requirements; provide basic geological, geotechnical and hydrological data for evaluation of selected crossing method.
  • Detailed Geotechnical Evaluation
    • More detailed review of site subsurface conditions including gathering of hard data from boreholes, pits, etc.
  • Development of geotechnical models
  • Water resource engineering
