    Gannett Fleming’s specialists have the in-depth knowledge to excel on the most challenging geotechnical assignments. We provide innovative solutions for foundations, underground construction, earth structures, groundwater resources, and marginal building sites. Our geotechnical engineers and geologists specialize in landslides, sinkholes, mine subsidence, seepage, expansive soils, and seismic activity. We have completed more than 1,000 subsurface and geophysical projects across the U.S. – from small-scale projects to large, complex dams, highways, bridges, and underground structures.

    Our Geotechnical Practice is currently seeking a Senior Geotechnical Engineer to join the Pittsburgh, PA office.

    As a Senior Geotechnical Engineer, you will assist in the completion of geotechnical projects within a wide variety of business sectors, with a focus in water resources, dam and navigational structure engineering, and soil-structure interaction. You should possess experience with the planning and execution of subsurface investigation programs; completion of various geotechnical analyses and design including seepage and slope stability of earthen embankments, shallow and deep foundations, and retaining structures; development of construction plans and specification deliverables; and performing dam and levee safety inspections.


    • Perform geotechnical calculations for various projects including, but not limited to seepage and slope stability of earthen embankments, shallow and deep foundations, retaining structures, tieback anchors, soil nails, slope stability design and/or stabilization.
