WichitaGeolocation: 37.6604, -97.4112

Terracon's Wichita office opened in 1975 as Soil Testing Services of Kansas. In 1980, Soil Testing Services of Iowa and Soil Testing Services of Kansas united as Terracon. While many of the services, which the office provides, remain the same today as they were in 1975, engineering and testing has become faster and more sophisticated. Terracon's Wichita office provides a full range of geotechnical, environmental, and construction materials engineering services throughout South Central and Western Kansas. In 1999, the Wichita office expanded to include a full service satellite location in Garden City, with the acquisition of the Mike Hawkins Company, to provide more responsive and reliable service to our clients in Western Kansas. Garden City is a leading provider of agricultural and construction materials engineering and testing services, and has worked with Wichita to provide geotechnical and environmental engineering services. With more than 35 years of experience with offices in Kansas, our employees are extremely knowledgeable about local geologic conditions, construction materials procedures and codes, and environmental policies, regulations and concerns. Wichita has a fully equipped, certified laboratory, supported by the largest field technician crew and equipment fleet in the Wichita area. Wichita is recognized as a leading provider of geotechnical and construction materials engineering services, in the Wichita area and throughout Western Kansas. Wichita's environmental strengths include due diligence, remediation, regulatory compliance, landfills, IAQ/asbestos, and natural resources.
