Professional Staff

CTE’s breadth of diversified expertise available to project owners and their representatives begins with Geotechnical Engineers and Certified Engineering Geologists that work closely with project owners, developers, architects, or their representatives and have performed investigations and hazard assessments for thousands of projects with literally all possible site conditions.

Past projects have included deep foundation design, site specific seismic response development, ground modification, slope stability analyses, and typical grading control. Past project types have included high-rise and mid-rise office buildings, hotels, condominiums and apartments, casinos, universities, and various K-12 public school projects, churches, shopping malls, residential developments, industrial parks, earth and rock fill dams, as well as hundreds of US Navy, US Army Corps, Federal Highway, State, City, Municipal, and Utility projects. CTE takes an innovative approach to all of our complex projects to provide the owner’s design and development team with the best alternatives possible no matter what the site conditions may be.

CTE’s construction material testing and special structural inspection capabilities include all on and offsite field inspections and materials testing required to be performed on virtually all most construction projects. CTE can perform all California and Uniform Building Code, Federal, State, and local municipality required inspections and construction materials testing.
