The functions of the Geotechnical Engineering Section within the Construction & Materials Bureau are principally directed toward providing foundation recommendations for all structures. The Section has a team to conduct subsurface explorations and a geologist to analyze rock samples and administer the rock fall hazard mitigation plan. The Section provides slope stability analyses for the highway and rail network, and tests soil and aggregate samples in support of design and construction.
 
The Geotechnical Engineering Section is tasked with providing foundation recommendations for all structures; it is comprised of a subsurface investigation team that takes borings, and a geologist that analyzes rock samples and administers the rock-fall hazard mitigation plan. The group provides slope stability analysis for the highway and rail network, and tests soil and aggregate samples.
