Scott Walter began in the geotechnical engineering field in 1986 after graduating from the University of California, Los Angeles. Scott began his geotechnical engineering career with a small geotechnical engineering firm in the San Fernando Valley. Scott worked throughout the firm covering all aspects of geotechnical engineering from construction observation, laboratory testing, and field exploration to office geotechnical engineering analyses and report preparation. Clients included the general public and several independent geologists. In 1995 Scott co-founded GeoConcepts, to provide complete Geology and Geotechnical Engineering services.
Scott has performed geotechnical explorations covering flatland sites, hillside sites, liquefaction potential, landslides, distress analysis and mitigation, water tanks, and slope stability monitoring.
Projects include single-family residences, single family improvements (additions, swimming pools, decks, walls), tracts of single-family residences, commercial buildings, condominium complexes and water tanks. Explorations involve feasibility of construction in hillside areas, groundwater and seepage problems, liquefaction potential, slope stability, expansive soils/bedrock design, settlement, erosion protection, and retaining structures. In addition to the direct supervision of soils laboratory testing, Scott has provided supervision of grading control throughout Southern California.
