Mining, power, and infrastructure projects require a detailed understanding of the biophysical environment such that they can be designed to safely be constructed, operated, and eventually closed. Knight Piésold employs specialists in climate, water, geochemical, and geomorphological to assess the site conditions and provide feedback to the design engineers. 

The hazards related to the local terrain can affect the risks related to transmission lines, roads, and other forms of infrastructure. Furthermore, proper seismic evaluations are critical to establishing safe long-term design criteria for whatever the project that is being considered. Knight Piésold employs industry-standard techniques to identify the risks in these areas.
