Trust is the foundation of the relationships that make projects succeed.
CDM Smith sets geotechnical standards around the world. Using our experience and knowledge of the interaction between buildings and foundations we develop solutions for shallow, deep and combined foundations. Special foundations with heavy point loads and cyclic or dynamic loads are our specialty. We set ourselves apart by our numerics know-how and innovative technologies, such as combined pile-raft foundations or groundfreezing.
Heavy Civil Engineering
CDM Smith's core competences include deep construction excavations, shafts, trenches, tunnels, landscape or dam structures – even in highly complicated conditions such as projects close to other buildings or at contaminated sites. With two- and three-dimensional Finite-Element Method calculations regarding soil statics, stability, deformation and loads as well as the lowering of groundwater, we develop concepts and designs for numerous applications.
