What we do
We are specialized engineers that provide trend setting solutions for projects that operate in the mountains. We understand the challenges of operating through weather, short construction windows, helicopter access and worker safety. We apply our practical hands on experience ensuring schedules and budgets are met.
Avalanche Risk Management
Snow avalanches can present serious risks to workers, infrastructure and highways.
6 Point Engineering provides practical solutions for operations that need to do business in avalanche terrain. We provide avalanche risk assessments and design risk reduction solutions including zoning, planning, explosive control and permanent structural designs for the following sectors:
- Mining, Oil and Gas
- Ski areas
- Backcountry Ski Lodges
We specialize in the technical design of unique structures in challenging environments.
The design of avalanche protection infrastructure demands the ability to merge classic engineering principles to the complexity of the mountain environment. 6 Point Engineering has expertise in all aspects of the following:
- Avalanche mitigation systems
- Remote avalanche control systems Avalanche snow shed design
- Avalanche deflection berms
- Avalanche stopping walls
- Avalanche fencing
- Ski area layout and design
- Helicopter pads
Operating in mountainous terrain puts workers at risk. We work with clients to create safe work environments.
6 Point Engineering specializes in practical and functional engineering design solutions for worker fall restraint, fall arrest and rope access in steep mountainous terrain. We provide fall risk assessments, perform engineering designs and inspect new or existing systems. We provide services for Transportation, Mining, Oil and Gas, hydroelectric, and Ski industries.
- Worker fall restraint, fall arrest and rope access in steep mountainous terrain.
- Emergency services which include feasibility and logistics planning for worksites and camps.
Our Engineering Process
From Concept, Tender, Design and completion, 6 point is there at every step to keep industry moving thru complex terrain and ensure your project’s success.
Assessments to identify your projects needs through stakeholder meetings, site investigations and review of existing reports or designs.
What sets us apart is our multidisciplinary engineering approach combining snow avalanche, civil, structural and geotechnical backgrounds. This allows us to perform risk analyses and mitigation solutions that are feasible and economical.
Our engineers are trained and comfortable in mountain terrain providing quality assurance inspections on mountain sides in winter or summer.
