ClevelandGeolocation: 41.4012, -81.7807

Terracon's Cleveland office opened in March 1986, operating under its original company name, Applied Construction Technologies, Inc. (ACT). In 2006, ACT was acquired by H.C. Nutting Company and in 2007 became a part of Terracon. We are a full service location, providing geotechnical, environmental, and materials engineering and testing services to Northern Ohio, Michigan, Western Pennsylvania, and Western New York. Recently, more complex project experience has included wind farm development, levee certification, and large diameter micro-tunnel construction. Testing, both common and unique, can be performed on soil, concrete, masonry, asphalt, and coatings in our laboratory. Combined, our staff of 20 professionals, technicians, and administrative personnel bring almost 250 years of experience serving commercial, industrial, government, and financial clients.
