Brian Clements

Brian Clements, GIT

Geology Staff


Brian has served as staff field geologist on varied projects, including Federal Highway rock slope exploration and design, railroad bridge and rock slope exploration and design, and railroad emergency repair work, in addition to educational and entertainment related developments. For many of these projects, Brian has assisted in planning and implementing geologic and geotechnical investigations to characterize rock slope conditions and perform kinematic analyses to evaluate rock slope stability along high-elevation mountain roads, railway alignments, and railway bridge abutments. Brian’s ground improvement experience includes deep soil mixing to mitigate liquefaction and lateral spread hazards.

Brian’s experience allows him to be highly adaptable to geologic tasks including construction observation, soil borehole logging, rock core logging, developing bedrock contour maps and subsurface profiles, geologic maps, discontinuity stereonets, as well as report preparation. Brian’s background in geophysics, physics, and geology support a strong analytical approach to geotechnical problem solving.
