Geotechnical Engineering

Marvin Davis & Associates provides a conventional and specialized geotechnical engineering services including site geotechnical evaluations, geotechnical and geologic hazard investigations, fault studies, and seismic hazard evaluations including liquefaction studies. Our geotechnical engineers routinely provide construction specifications for earthwork, concrete flat work and roadway sections, retaining and rockery wall construction, sub-drainage systems and stream bank stabilization. On recent projects we have provided designs including driven piles, ground improvement for liquefaction, and vibropiers for settlement control.

Additionally, we develop strategies for solutions to issues such as slope and/or embankment stability, temporary slope stability, design of retaining structures, and erosion control mitigation.

In the Reno/Sparks/Carson City area, we have performed geotechnical consultations for Meadowood Mall, City of Reno utilities, NV Energy, the Truckee Meadows Water Reclamation Facility, residential erosion control and geotechnical design. In both areas, Marvin E Davis & Associates also performs a wide variety of smaller consultations, including commercial and industrial construction or additions, and individual residential geotechnical reports.

In the Lake Tahoe/Truckee area, we have performed geotechnical investigations for several large resort developments including village, mid-mountain and upper hotels, restaurants and fractional ownership projects at Northstar-at-Tahoe Resort; Mid-Mountain Lodge at Homewood; Ski Run shopping center in South Lake Tahoe, numerous projects in Truckee, and the new Squaw Valley Public Service District fire station in Squaw Valley. We provide a wide range of services for smaller residential and commercial projects, including geotechnical design and soil/hydrologic investigations. We routinely perform projects where difficult site access or accessibility issues are present during investigation.
