Findling has well trained inspectors certified by MARTCP, ACI and various State and Federal agencies. Our inspectors perform construction inspection services on major highways, buildings, streets, dams and hazardous waste sites. They are certified to do inspection of soils, concrete and asphalt.
Our employees are OSHA HAZWOPER safety certified to work at hazardous waste sites (1610.120), and our drilling inspectors are SHA Certified.
We provide all necessary equipment to our technicians to provide soil, concrete and asphalt testing on small and large construction projects.
Findling has experienced and licensed professional Engineers to conduct cost effective geotechnical analysis, design and field exploration services for our clients. Our areas of expertise include the following:
Findling, Inc. has drill rigs capable of drilling with hollow stem augers, mud or casing. A barge mounted drill rig allows us to drill on water. We have wireline equipment for coring rock to depths of over 150 feet. The augers range in size from 8 inch O.D. to 16 inch O.D., allowing us to install up to 12 inch diameter cased wells. We can install double cased wells to depths exceeding 150 feet in coastal plain deposits.
Our drilling services include:
We have the expertise to install, monitor and analyze geotechnical instrumentation, including:
In addition, we provide vibration monitoring during rock blasting operations or during construction near sensitive structures. We also provide pre-construction and post-construction survey of sensitive structures near work sites.
Some of the environmental engineering services we provide include:
Findling, Inc. has a AMRL accredited and well-equipped soils and concrete laboratory with trained and certified laboratory technicians. We maintain strict quality control standards with meticulous record keeping. We utilize the latest state-of-the-art equipment, and all of our equipment is regularly serviced and calibrated to keep it in perfect working condition. All testing is performed under the supervision of a Professional Engineer, and the testing is performed in accordance with ASTM and AASHTO Specifications.
