Engineering Geology

Supporting Clients During Construction

Engineering Geologists provide the bridge between the built and natural environment and our diverse team of geologists and civil engineers, allow us to take a holistic approach to design.  Our engineers are constantly exploring innovative ways to optimise designs based on the conditions at the site, which means every design we provide is unique.

ByrneLooby engineers are experienced in assessing earthworks for signs of distress and designing remediation solutions to stabilise structures that could be at risk of failure from stresses such as climate change, subsidence, capacity limit and ageing or non-resilient materials.  During site visits, we investigate infrastructural risks associated with earthworks and recommend long-term and short-term mitigation strategies.  Our engineers undertake kinematic, limit equilibrium, and finite element analyses to accurately model earthworks and deliver optimal design solutions.  Our engineers work across various sectors, including rail, highway, infrastructure, and private construction.

Our rope-access trained geologists can get up close to investigate tricky and remote areas that would otherwise be inaccessible.  While there, they assess hazards, tactilely inspecting, taking structural rock measurements, and logging slopes to gain a complete understanding of risks presented by earthworks.  Our studies and investigations can be conducted in numerous phases of public and project projects: planning (including assessing environmental impacts), civil/structural engineering design, value engineering, construction, forensic phases and post-construction.  We can provide comprehensive assessments, including geological hazard assessments, for geotechnical, material properties, stability of landslides and slopes, erosion, flooding, dewatering, and seismic investigations.
