Director of Engineering

Bruce Roth, PE specializes in foundation analysis and design, slope stability analysis and design, rock and soil mechanics, subsurface exploration, geophysical investigation techniques, and geosynthetics. He provides geotechnical engineering services for dam and building foundations, CCR facilities, electrical gas and transmission lines, and the geotechnical aspects of transportation projects. His geotechnical engineering experience spans 30 years with both public and private sector clients including 20 years as a project manager.

Bruce is a graduate of Cornell University where his research included evaluating earthquake induced ground failure from soil liquefaction and surface faulting, and assessing buried lifeline response to large soil deformation. He studied case histories of the 1971 San Fernando and 1979 Imperial Valley earthquakes. He participated in post-earthquake site investigations in San Francisco and the epicentral area after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Most recently, Bruce has delivered many papers on foundations for transmission line design in environmentally sensitive and landslide prone areas. Bruce has professional registration in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia.
