Negotiating the complexities of environmental issues can be challenging and time consuming. Terracon relies upon demonstrated experience and knowledge of local conditions and regulations to deliver solutions that are timely, practical and make good business sense.
As a facility owner, manager, or lender, you may face challenges like complying with new building codes and environmental regulations; dealing with systems and material failures in aging structures; assessing environmental hazards; and managing operating expenditures to achieve optimum building performance at a minimum cost. The physical condition of the roof, pavement, HVAC equipment, plumbing, and electrical systems are typically the most critical issues at a facility and can represent millions of dollars in repair and replacement costs. These components must be managed and maintained for maximum return on investment.
Before owners can build highways, dams, buildings and other structures, they need a partner to help determine how the characteristics of the soil conditions on the site will react under the “stress” caused by the weight of the structure. Terracon is that partner.
If you are an owner, contractor, or engineer associated with the design and construction of structures, you want to verify that the materials used during construction comply with the project specifications. To ensure today’s buildings and infrastructure perform adequately during long time periods, proper selection, quality and workmanship of materials is vital. Terracon works with clients to minimize material replacements, reduce the likelihood of deterioration, avoid potential failures, and investigate and evaluate materials-related problems and failures when they do occur.
