Mr. Amicon has more than 30 years of experience providing geotechnical engineering and construction testing services for a variety of commercial, retail, industrial, state, federal and residential projects and clients throughout Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia. As a geotechnical engineer, Mr. Amicon manages and directs subsurface investigations and associated laboratory testing programs in order to develop subsurface information necessary to support geotechnical engineering analyses for various civil engineering design projects, such as; single- to multi-story structures, roadway and bridges, earthwork and borrow studies, landslides, retaining structures, underground utilities, landfill design, and forensic investigations. Mr. Amicon performs geotechnical analyses to determine soil and bedrock characteristics (i.e., shear strength, unit weight, gradation, compressibility and permeability), foundation bearing capacity, slope and stability safety factors for soil/rock slopes, total and differential settlement, lateral earth pressures, seismic and liquefaction potential, pavement design, and hydrostatic uplift. Based on experience with hundreds of projects, Mr. Amicon is well versed in the analyses, design and construction of shallow foundations, deep foundation systems (i.e., driven piles, caissons, auger-cast piles, aggregate piers, micro-piles, etc.), temporary and permanent retention structures, cut and fill slopes, landslide evaluations, underground utilities, roadway embankments, bridge foundations, large earthwork developments, Seismic Site Classification, landfill design and permitting, and pavement rehabilitation and design. Mr. Amicon routinely supports owners, engineers and contractors during the construction of projects by serving as the owners representative, Special Inspector and/or managing QA/QC technicians, testing and reporting.
