I believe what she means is that she needs foundation/construction/soil engineer. There are not alot of engineers that specialize and are licensed for in all those specific areas...
Took me a little time to find one in my area for a problem addition (we didn't build it). The guy I have is an MIT graduate and one of the only guys in the area. He's booked up for months.
She should contact engineering companies (tele. book or online local search) and ask around.
