According to the American Society of Foundation Engineers, “Subsurface problems are the principal cause of construction delays and cost overruns.” Terradyne thoroughly evaluates the subsurface conditions and provides design recommendations utilizing the most practical, economical and technologically sound solutions. Terradyne provides geotechnical engineering services for a wide variety of clients including industrial, institutional, governmental, commercial and residential projects. Investigations are performed to determine subsurface conditions to provide design recommendations and construction criteria. We have the technical capability and equipment to perform investigations throughout several states across the United States. Terradyne’s technical staff has the education and project experience to analyze and characterize surface and subsurface conditions. Our Geotechnical Engineers base their design recommendations on detailed information and experience with a variety of conditions.
Terradyne provides environmental engineering evaluations as part of the” due diligence” process related to property acquisition and development. These investigations are performed for a number of reasons including purchase of a property, early planning to identify potential environmental hazards and mitigation of hazards to allow for construction. Our Environmental Engineers and Geologists work with landowners, land planers, engineers, and architects to minimize environmental risk and problems, and provide effective solutions to comply with resolutions.
Construction Materials Testing
Quality materials and workmanship determine the success of every construction project. A Quality Control and Quality Assurance plan can assist in reducing construction delays and future building performance problems. Terradyne’s Construction Materials Testing Department can provide a Quality Control Plan for any construction project. Our experienced professional and highly trained technical staff work with the owners, professional design teams, contractors and city inspectors to assure a construction project is substantially consistent with construction plans and specifications.
Terradyne provides geological engineering evaluations as part of the “due diligence” process related to property acquisition and development. These investigations are performed for a number of reasons including purchase of a property, early planning to identify potential geologic hazards, enhance development based on geologic conditions, mitigation of hazards to allow for construction, mitigation of distress or risks related to geologic conditions, determination of suitability for onsite wastewater systems, and evaluation of aggregate as a construction material resource.
Civil Site Design
Terradyne provides a full range of civil site design services for both private and public sectors. Our professional engineering staff has extensive experience in all aspects of civil design and site development including retail and commercial development, roadway construction, hydrologic and hydraulic analysis and construction administration. Together with our knowledge and experience of site development, environmental and geotechnical engineering, we are able to produce engineering drawings utilizing innovative and cost effective solutions to design projects of any size.
