Our people — from geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists to drafters, editors, and administrative staff — are truly our strength.  Well-trained academically, highly skilled technically, and experienced with the GRI team approach, these professionals give GRI not only its capability but its face and spirit as well.

While GRI has continued to grow since 1984, we are proud of the fact that more than half the staff have worked together for 14 to 30 years.  Our greatest strengths are the technical expertise and experience of our staff, several of whom have more than 30 years’ experience in the Pacific Northwest.  This experience allows us to successfully complete a wide range fo projects, from initial scope development through design and construction.

You, our clients, will benefit from our staff’s unparalleled ability to provide high-quality services throughout a project’s life cycle, from efficiently identifying best approaches to completing complex projects.  After you meet them here, GRI’s experienced team is only a phone call or email away.
