Development unites the passion and creativity of architecture with the science and innovation of engineering, and GRI provides the geotechnical support to help our partners bring their vision to reality.

We continuously collaborate with our partners to develop creative, constructible, and sustainable solutions for projects ranging from small, support structures to high rise buildings. We have diverse experience with these types of projects on sites varying from challenging, complex, urban infill areas to large, undeveloped tracts of land. As part of our commitment to sustainability and good stewardship of our natural resources, we strive to provide recommendations, such as selection of foundation systems that reduce excavation of on-site materials or modification and re-use of on-site materials to reduce the need to remove materials from the site, that are good for the environment and help our partners meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) goals. We have a trusted and experienced team ready to help develop tailored solutions that meet the unique needs of your project.
