Grand Canyon Skywalk

Skywalk Geologic Hazards Analysis

Before joining Tierra Group, our Team performed a geo-mechanical assessment of a potential rock-slope instability condition impacting this very high-profile tourist attraction resort located on the rim of the Grand Canyon in northern Arizona. The report and recommendations from this review resulted in implementation of a long-term monitoring program and revised foundation design criteria for a planned hotel development at this destination resort.
