Depoe Bay Seawall and Harbor
Depoe Bay Seawall and Harbor

Cornforth Consultants' experience provides flexibility to accomplish geotechnical tasks with tight scheduling demands common to marine and airport facilities. Due to our proximity to major rivers and the Pacific Coast, we have extensive experience dealing with soft, compressible soils common to these environments.

Our team of engineers and geologists have performed subsurface investigations to determine the quality of a potential jettystone quarry source for the Columbia River Jetty, mitigated seawall instability with shear piles, and performed tight schedule subsurface explorations for the South Runway at Portland International Airport.
