With Terracon's offices in the surrounding geographic areas of New Orleans and our many years of work there for numerous clients that commanded our level of service, we made a decision to open a new office in the New Orleans metropolitan area in 2010. The area needed a national firm that brought quality and service to the design and construction industry, particularly in this time of enormous rebuilding and infrastructure improvement. We initially began our operations by providing construction materials engineering and testing on projects that stemmed from our national client base, governmental capabilities, and local firms. We have built solid relationships with local architects, designers, and contractors to facilitate the growth of a full service office. We currently offer geotechnical, environmental, construction materials engineering and testing, and facilities services.

In addition, we also provided reinforcing steel inspection of the pile caps, grade beams, and floor slabs. Concrete testing of these structures was also performed, as well as for pavements around the hangar. Soil moisture/density testing of pavement sub grade soils was also performed.
Terracon was contracted by Quality Enterprise USA, Inc. for three important flood control projects directed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The LPV 104.02 London Avenue Project was designed to provide hurricane protection and storm proofing for the existing Seabrook Bridge and surrounding areas from storm surge flow from Lake Pontchartrain. The testing included vibration monitoring, soil density testing, and concrete testing associated with construction of new T-Walls.
Terracon completed full-time vibration monitoring during demolition of existing structures,…
This project includes construction of a three-story, steel framed, 113,000 square foot hospital structure, supported on displacement pile foundations. The full-service hospital replaces the 200-bed Chalmette Medical Center, which was demolished after Katrina.
