Dean Francuch

Dean Francuch, PE, CEG

Senior Associate

Dean has more than 32 years of professional experience being actively involved from the "ground up", conducting and managing projects involving geotechnical engineering and engineering geology for engineered facilities (landfills, mines, transportation, and pipelines), residential, commercial, and entertainment related developments.

Dean's experience includes working on both private and public-funded projects from single-lot homes to interstate expansion. For many of those projects, Dean has planned and implemented geologic and geotechnical investigations to characterize soil and rock conditions at sites for developments ranging from single parcel retail to multi-story office buildings. He has conducted numerous geotechnical investigations to recognize active faults, landslides, liquefaction, and other geologic hazards. His ground improvement experience includes stone columns, and deep soil mixing to mitigate liquefaction and lateral spread hazards.
