Hi, I’m Moh and I test soil so people know how to build on top of it. I’m passionate about amazing buildings and my job is all about checking different types of soil and rocks to make sure when we build on them the buildings don’t fall down. I take the lead on my work but it is also important to listen to, and learn from, others. There are so many different types of soil, rocks and buildings and I love the variety in engineering.
Mohammad Khreishi is a Geotechnical Engineer – when a new structure is about to be built he checks the soil and the rocks at the building site to support the design of strong foundations for the building.
