Load testing – Load testing is necessary when installing foundation piles to verify the capacity and depth of the pile. Additionally, when new materials or connections are used that do not have values or previous testing and data to provide capacities, load testing is used to determine this information.
Pre-Purchase Inspections – These inspections are typically performed for a homeowner or bank to inspect the overall structure or specific areas of concern so that the buyer or seller is aware of any concerns or repairs that may be needed to the structure.
Value Engineering – Utilizing the code mandated loads, structural drawings can be value engineered to remove some of the excess hardware and structural elements that are not necessary and reduce the construction and labor cost of the project.
Continuing Education – Approved as CEU providers for insurance adjusters, contractors, architects, condominium association managers, and building officials. See our Events page for upcoming public CEU events.
Vibration Monitoring – Specialized vibratory monitoring equipment is used to detect the vibrations created from construction activities such as vibratory rollers and pile driving machines.
Instrumentation/Monitoring – Instruments are set up to monitor specific changes in materials or structures including, but not limited to, temperature and movement.
ICF Engineering – Drawings for insulated concrete forms (ICF) can be designed and created for new projects or prior to construction as a delegated engineering portion of the project. This product is also used on green building projects.
Concrete testing – Slump and strength tests can be performed on concrete during new construction projects.
