The Myrtle Beach office opened in 2002 with four people. We provide geotechnical evaluation, environmental consulting, and construction materials engineering and testing services, consisting of Phase I and II ESAs, remediations, and mining hydrogeology.
The Myrtle Beach Terracon office has worked on a wide variety of projects including environmental site assessment for construction jobs, geotechnical exploration for a thrill ride and subsurface investigation for a stormwater management project.
The Bay Pointe Apartments is an affordable housing development in Myrtle Beach. WPC, A Terracon Company, was retained to perform geotechnical, environmental, and construction materials engineering and testing services for Phase I (recently constructed) and Phase II (currently being constructed). WPC conducted a Phase 1 environmental site assessment and performed a geotechnical exploration at the property. The geotechnical exploration was conducted to provide recommendations concerning the design and construction of building foundations, floor slabs, and pavements for the proposed project.
The Ocean Outfall Projects for the Cities of Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach in South Carolina is an ongoing project to reduce beach contamination by better managing stormwater. In Myrtle Beach, pipes currently drain stormwater runoff onto the beach at several locations. The ocean outfall projects will collect water from existing beach pipes and divert it under the beach and more than 1,000 feet into the ocean. This will help to prevent high bacteria levels near the shore.

The Skyscraper Thrill Ride is an amusement park ride in Myrtle Beach. The ride features a giant propeller consisting of two arms that spins guests in a full circle. Four riders, two on each arm, sit in open cars on opposite ends of the propeller. The arms of the propeller quickly rotate spinning riders at speeds of up to 55 mph. At its highest point, riders are upside down 160 feet above the ground.
