How to hire a great freelance Geotechnical Engineer
Why hire a geotechnical engineer? Geotechnical engineers are trained to evaluate the stability of natural elements such as various soil and rock types before construction begins on a new building. For this reason, geotechnical engineers are typically found within the architecture and construction industries and are commonly employed with civil engineering firms.
Geotechnical engineers also evaluate important factors about the surrounding area such as proximity to a fault line and the state of the local bedrock. Both of these factors could have a significant impact on the decision whether or not to build at a certain location.
Recognizing the need for structural stability, any organization that is considering the purchase or construction of a new building should consider discussing the project with a geotechnical engineer to ensure the safety and stability of the structure before moving in. Current standards in the industry require that these engineers possess at a minimum a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering. However, many organizations require a Master’s level degree.
As an industry outsider unfamiliar with this geotechnical engineering and without the formal training required in the industry, the learning curve may seem steep and lead to significant frustration as well as setbacks such as failure to comply with local code and requirements for geotechnical safety. Trying to determine the structural soundness of a particular plot of land without experience is not advisable. The solution to this issue however is rather simple: hire a geotechnical engineer.
