Mr. Halcomb, P.E., G.E., has over 13 years of geotechnical and cold regions engineering experience and is currently employed by CRW Engineering Group, LLC in Anchorage, Alaska. He regularly oversees geotechnical efforts on projects ranging from several hundred thousand to multi-million dollars in various environments including the arctic, subarctic, and marine. He has experience in shallow and deep foundation design, construction, and inspection, including pile driving analyzer, and he has worked in ideal and adverse conditions including liquefiable and expansive soils and frozen ground. In addition, his geotechnical knowledge includes site planning and investigations, laboratory testing, slope stability, geotechnical earthquake engineering, ground improvement, earth retaining structures, reinforced soil and geosynthetics, braced and unbraced excavations, pavement design, construction testing, observation and monitoring, foundations in frozen ground, and thermal analyses. He is a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers and the Geo-Institute. He earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Arctic Engineering, and his M.C.E. and Earthquake graduate certificate from the University of Alaska Anchorage.
