Subsidence Risk Analysis

Whether from karst terrane or underground mines, a very important determination is the assessment of subsidence risk of a proposed or existing site and, more importantly, the potential damage that could result. Due to MEA’s knowledge and experience track, we rank among the best in rendering the highest quality of risk assessment.
