OUR SERVICES

 

During construction, our sampling, monitoring and quality control services cover every phase of construction and all materials used. Our services are guided by project specifications and ensure sound, safe and quality construction.

 

We maintain a fully equipped in-house soils, concrete, and aggregate testing laboratory certified by Construction Materials Engineering Council (CMEC) and approved by Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).  Our  field and laboratory technicians hold industry-recognized certifications  (ACI/CTQP/PCI/FPCA) for aggregates, asphalt, concrete, and earthwork testing as well as drilled shaft, augercast pile, and pile driving installation monitoring.

We provide a complete range of geotechnical engineering services.  Our geotechnical design solutions define and reduce construction and long-term performance risks.  Whether buildings, airport facilities, transportation systems, landfills, dams, or other civil and private projects, our engineers have the experience and expertise to handle the most technically demanding projects.

 

TSF also owns a large, diverse fleet of 8 drill rigs with automatic hammers (truck-mounted, track-mounted, rotary, tripod, ATV, barge/overwater) capable of drilling in challenging conditions whether remote, soft, marshy, over-water, difficult access or environmentally sensitive areas. We also employee MOT (Maintenance of Traffic) certified staff  to safely perform  drilling services in high traffic areas.

 

 

TSF also provides building inspection services and specialty testing services to verify that the Construction Manager maintains appropriate methods and the construction complies with the Construction Contract Documents. Our inspectors review the completeness and accuracy of the work completed.

 

Our team includes licensed Florida Building inspectors as well as highly experienced and licensed Special Inspectors who, under the State of Florida Building Standards, are capable of performing  threshold inspections .
