Contour Engineering conducts subsurface geotechnical investigations, site characterization, and geotechnical foundation design recommendations for both public and private clients. Soil testing is performed in-house at our AASHTO certified geotechnical soils testing laboratory.
Contour Engineering conducts many facets of environmental consulting services to include: Phase I & II ESAs, soil and groundwater assessment, CAP preparation and implementation, brownfield services and wetland/natural resources consulting.
Contour Engineering performs special inspection services and construction materials testing. Our laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to perform tests in accordance with the ASTM and AASHTO.
Contour provided cost-effective solutions for the foundations in the coastal plain soils that included auger-cast piles, driven timber piles, drilled shafts, and shallow foundations. In addition, Contour performed construction materials testing services with an on-site, full service soils and concrete laboratory. This allowed Contour the capability to provide immediate results for compressive strength tests to the contractor during post-tensioning for the condominium buildings. As well as swift results of compaction percentages during fill placement of the varying soil types.
We are currently using Contour for both earthwork and building materials testing. We have used them on a number of projects over the past several years because they are very thorough, competent and practical. Unlike some firms, Contour spends the owner’s money like they would their own. For example, Contour’s staff offered innovative alternatives for soil conditions at our site that ultimately resulted in a $170,000.00 in savings.
Our City School has had the opportunity to work with many firms over the years. We are most impressed with Contour’s continued pursuit in meeting the long range goals and needs of our City Schools.
Contour has provided outstanding service and support to the Conrac Facility at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Contour Engineering’s dedication and professionalism are the standards by which any organization should be judged. Contour has consistently been a leader on this $200 million dollar plus project as a part of the Airport Expansion Program. I am sure they will continue to exhibit these superior qualities as they continue to perform services in the Geotechnical, Special Inspections and Materials Testing arena.
