Design and Construction Services

GZA’s design experience includes restoration of earth, rock, stone masonry, timber and concrete dams. 

Our geotechnical engineers apply proven methods to assess seepage, stability, and seismic design-related issues.  Likewise, GZA hydrologist and hydraulic engineers provide risk-based solutions to spillway capacity and outlet works retrofits.  We have successfully designed and permitted  projects ranging from minor tree removal work to major rehabilitation and embankment raising.  Our design team is capable of producing complete construction document packages, including plans and specifications  and works with clients to develop bid packages. 

At the site, our role extends to field work where our Resident Engineer observes and documents the progress of construction, conditions encountered, contractor effort and personnel, and compliance of the work with the project plans and specifications.
