Geocal – derived from the word geotechnical.  A company comprised of dedicated stakeholders, with an uncompromising commitment to quality and service, working together to create practical engineering solutions to benefit our community. 

Geocal’s goal is simple – help others be successful, and we will be too. We want our clients to be successful, starting with a thorough understanding of their needs and goals, and what we can do to help them achieve them. Sometimes that means providing the right personnel on a construction site, but sometimes that means being a trusted advisor, listening to concerns, looking for an innovative way to solve a problem. We always strive to give our best, maintain our client’s trust, and provide superior quality and value.

We devote our attention to your project, and put our expertise and training to work for you.

Definition of a Stakeholder

Our company is led by individuals who believe you should manage things and lead people.  We believe in guiding and assisting our team, not just sitting back and telling them what to do.

We want our employees (Stakeholders) to be successful, which means providing an environment where they can grow and learn. We encourage training and certifications to ensure that our employees are continually learning, and providing good value to our clients. We look to hire individuals who share our values, who believe in helping others, who aren’t afraid to ask why, and look for new and better ways of accomplishing things.

Nur Hossain, Ph.D., P.E.

President

Nur has over 12 years of experience in geotechnical engineering that includes high-level engineering, client service, and team leadership for geotechnical design. His technical experience includes the design of pavements for both roadway and airport runways, earth retention systems of various types, foundations, walls of various types, settlement analyses, deep and shallow foundations, ground improvement, and slope stability/stabilization. Nur has experience with FWD, dilatometer, refraction microtremor, cone penetration, and specialized instrumentation and analyses for rock and soil slope stability, and retaining wall global stability. Nur’s PhD dissertation was on Mechanistic Empirical design for pavements, and he has published numerous research papers and conference proceedings on the use of ME design and sensitivity of the design parameters.

Currently Nur is managing the day to day operations of Geocal and is also acting as the Principal Engineer for the company.

A team of engineers, geologists and technicians assist Nur in managing the responsibilities. Nur attends the project meetings with clients, oversees the field and laboratory works for the projects, helps in the engineering analyses, and reviews the reports prior to delivering those to the client.
