CRAIG S. SHIELDS, P.E., G.E.
Since 1982, Mr. Shields has provided geotechnical engineering experience in Northern California for a variety of private and public projects. He has managed geotechnical engineering projects, from low-rise buildings to high-rise towers, market-rate and affordable housing developments, as well as mixed-use, retail, commercial, and office developments. He has also performed geotechnical services for waterfront and harbor facilities, airports, light railways, slope repairs, quarry reclamations, municipal and regional parks, public and private schools, and institutional and public buildings.
Mr. Shields has developed design recommendations for deep and shallow foundations, ground improvement systems, deep excavations, slope stabilization, underpinning of existing structures, and temporary shoring and permanent retaining walls. He has performed forensic investigations, provided expert witness testimony, and performed peer reviews for numerous projects. He is instrumental in developing geotechnical recommendations that balance cost with performance and risk to the varying subsurface and project performance criteria.
