Antone Dabeet Ph.D., P.Eng.
Our Associates perform on-site investigations to determine origin and cause of complex losses. Their process: examine and collect evidence, take on-site photos, interview witnesses, conduct testing in our lab and analyze data to produce technical reports that are clear and concise.
Dr. Dabeet is a senior associate in the Geotechnical Group at 30 Forensic Engineering. Antone has 15 years of experience in geotechnical engineering (9 years in consulting and 6 years in research) with emphasis on geotechnical seismic analysis and design. He has experience in foundation design, geotechnical earthquake engineering, ground improvement, embankment design, numerical analysis, design and assessment of small earthfill dams, retaining wall design, slope stability assessments, soft soils and advanced laboratory testing. Antone is registered as a Professional Engineer in British Columbia.
