New OrleansGeolocation: 29.9493, -90.1834

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.
