Geoprofessional firms provide geotechnical, geologic, environmental, construction materials engineering and testing, and related professional services. Consulting firms who join GBA will derive an outstanding ROI by applying the resources, knowledge, relationships, and education GBA has created to help its members and their clients confront risk and optimize performance.
