Geotechnical Peer Review dramatically reduces potential losses to both private and public properties. Since 1974, CSA has been providing geotechnical peer review services to communities, ensuring that potential geotechnical hazards are mitigated before they become liabilities to municipalities and individual homeowners.
During the Peer Review process, CSA identifies and verifies adequate proposed mitigation of potential geotechnical hazards such as:
- Earthquake Faults
- Expansive Soils and Bedrock
- Soil Creep
- Adverse Drainage Conditions
CSA currently serves 15 peer review clients. In these communities, CSA acts as an extension of the City, Town or County staff, and frequently participates in meetings with planners and applicants to help resolve geotechnical issues. The specific interactions between municipalities and CSA are tailored to complement the individual municipality’s system and priorities.
