Our History

Since our inception in 1985, Geohazards has had a mission of caring for our clients. Our humble beginnings started in the Geology Department at the University of Florida, where our founders mentored future geologists. Their love for education and counseling naturally led to a company culture of personal service and thorough, thoughtful engineering and geology solutions. Geohazards has at its core a deep-rooted culture of people first. Stop by and meet our team!
