Our team is highly motivated to solve complex geomechanical problems.
It is composed by Civil and Geological Engineers with a relevant experience in this field.
The company is headed by Dr. Angel Garcia-Fontanet PEng CEng which has more than 20 years experience in Civil and Geotechnical Engineering. He was awarded with a doctoral degree in Geotechnical Engineering in 1998. His PhD thesis dealt with THM modelling applied to nuclear waste disposal.
Dr. Garcia-Fontanet is licensed in the UK and Canada (Province of Alberta) and also worked as senior researcher in the Department of Geotechnical Engineering and Geosciences (UPC – Barcelona Tech).
PRO GEO has a stable collaboration with Professor Dr. Marcos Arroyo, member of the Civil Engineering Department of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). Professor Arroyo obtained his PhD in Bristol University and he has extensive research experience in the field of underground projects, geomechanical modeling, in situ geotechnical tests, as well as in the offshore geotechnical engineering field.
Professor Arroyo is currently part of the editorial committee of Géotechnique, one of the most prestigious journals in its field, and he participates in the Eurocode 7 technical committee.
One of the key aspects is the continuous education of our team in order to offer the best technical solutions to our clients.
