Senior Geotechnical Engineer P: (419) 691-4800 x230 E:

Tricia Cosgrove provides project management experience for a broad range of geotechnical engineering services.  She prepares quotations for geotechnical services, conducts engineering analyses, and prepares geotechnical reports.  Areas of experience include shallow foundations, deep foundations (drilled piers, driven piles, auger-cast piles, helical piers, etc.), lateral load analysis,  slope stability analysis, settlement analysis, subgrade improvement, MSE and retaining wall design, geotechnical instrumentation (slope inclinometers, piezometers, etc.), pavement design, and embankment design.  In addition, Tricia provides field engineering services during project construction.  She obtained her B.A. in Physics from Hiram College and M.S. in geotechnical engineering from the University of Maine.  She has also passed the Professional Engineering exam and is in the process of obtaining her Ohio PE license.

Tricia enjoys working on a broad range of projects from private residences to major industrial expansions.  She has extensive experience at all of the refineries in northwest Ohio and at Davis-Besse nuclear power station.  In addition, she has performed geotechnical engineering for numerous bridges and major highway projects. Slope stability analysis and MSE wall design are two of her favorite niche areas of interest.  

When not playing in dirt at work, Tricia uses clay to create sculpture and pottery and is a member of the Toledo Potters’ Guild.  In addition, she is an avid auction goer and is always on the lookout for hidden treasures.  Unfortunately the only treasures she has ever unearthed on a job site are ketchup bottles, mattress springs, and an occasional plastic banana.
