ENERGY & COMMUNICATIONS

Geotechnical consultation for energy-based projects is an integral part of Foundation Engineering’s work.  Since 1982, our portfolio of projects includes investigations for numerous electrical substations, co-generation plants, electrical generation facilities, transmission lines and towers, and fuel storage facilities. 

Our work has involved siting studies, geotechnical investigations, site-specific seismic hazard studies, evaluation and design of mitigation options, and construction-support services.  We have also provided geotechnical analysis, design and consultation for deep foundations for transmission towers, buried transmission lines, and for wind farm turbines in Oregon and California.
