Since obtaining his Masters Degree in Foundation Engineering in 1987, David Wilshaw’s professional experience has been in the practice of Engineering Geology. As specialists in geology, engineering geologists generally possess expertise in applying the knowledge of defining and specifying how earth materials, processes, and structure may affect the built and natural environments.
How does this specialist training and experience translate to everyday life?
The Engineering Geologist has the responsibility of advising and guiding land developers, architects, civil engineers, structural engineers and contractors on the way in which the ground is likely to behave in response to construction either above or below the ground surface.
Similarly, when buildings and/or infrastructure do not perform as intended, this can often be due to problems below ground, so the Engineering Geologist will explore and assess the ground and assist the engineers in designing a remedial repair.
