Custom and Creative

We’ve invested heavily in our specialty equipment so we can better serve you.

Our in-house Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) provides non-destructive deflection testing to assess pavement strength and longevity and is an effective tool in determining appropriate rehabilitation methods.

As part of an extensive array of quality control measures for deep foundations, we own and operate a Pile Driving Analyzer® (PDA) for our dynamic pile load tests. We offer QA/QC services for drilled shafts that includes Crosshole Sonic Logging (CSL) testing and a downhole inspection camera. We also offer ground vibration monitoring services to monitor ground vibrations resulting from construction activities.

Our geotechnical soil labs offer a range of tests in accordance with ASTM standards. Notably, we have recently added Electromechanical Dynamic Cyclic Simple Shear (EMDCSS) seismic testing capabilities to our Wilsonville lab.
