“The world beneath our feet is just as fascinating as the ocean deeps and the unexplored sky. As a geotechnical engineer, I gain great pleasure from exploring underground. Every day I learn more about the processes that developed the earth into what we see today. At WDP, I use everything I know about the soil and its history to provide recommendations for safe and economic construction. It's fun seeing what a site used to be, then watching a client's dream realized when it becomes something totally new.”
