Haley & Aldrich partners with Center for Bio-mediated and Bio-inspired Geotechnics, National Science Foundation-funded research consortium

Burlington, Mass., June 17, 2019 – Haley & Aldrich announced today that it has partnered with the Center for Bio-mediated and Bio-inspired Geotechnics (CBBG), a National Science Foundation-funded research consortium that includes Arizona State University (ASU), UC Davis, Georgia Tech, and New Mexico State University. CBBG is focused on developing geotechnical processes and solutions inspired by nature that will facilitate sustainable infrastructure development to meet the pressing needs of the world’s growing industrialized population.

“Haley & Aldrich’s clients are seeking new, cost-effective, and environmentally sound ways to address their challenges and CBBG is seeking engineering solutions that are biologically based or biologically inspired,” said Mike Basel, Principal Consultant at Haley & Aldrich. “Our partnership with CBBG advances our vision to help our clients find the innovative technical solutions they’re looking for so we can, together, tackle the toughest issues facing the world.”

To realize its vision, CBBG combines fundamental scientific research with application-based engineering advances, facilitated by enabling technology and systems integration test beds. Haley & Aldrich is actively involved with all four CBBG focus areas, which include hazard mitigation, environmental protection and restoration, infrastructure construction, and subsurface exploration and excavation. In addition, Haley & Aldrich is actively engaged with CBBG education and knowledge transfer seminars and is hosting a technical seminar for CBBG students and faculty at ASU on June 21.
