InTEC of San Antonio can assist the owner from planning stages of a project to its completion with the project construction. The main areas of service offerings (geotechnical, environmental, and construction materials testing) are utilized, as needed, in different phases of a project. InTEC of San Antonio also assists the owner in addressing post construction requirements.
The preliminary soil survey shows the type of soils to be expected at the project site.
The soil borings can uncover potential soil related challenges within the project site.
The Phase I ESA, while frequently a requirement from the banks, brings to light potential environmental conditions.
InTEC of San Antonio utilizes years of experience with Texas soils and its geology to provide the best input for the planning purposes.
The foundation, or final soils investigation, provides the foundation design parameters to the structural engineer. Recommendations typically include conventional grid type slab, post-tension slab, spread footings, and pier and beam foundations.
The pavement design recommendations, including asphalt and concrete options, are presented to the owner.
One of the most discussed items at this stage is the site work recommendations. The site work decision impacts the construction phase of the project significantly. InTEC of San Antonio has years of experience in working with options such as moisture conditioning of on-site soils, water injection, chemical injection, and removal and replacement.
The majority of the construction stage service activities include compaction testing, concrete testing, and steel inspections. Special inspections are required as per the International Building Code. InTEC of San Antonio has routinely performed necessary inspections to satisfy these requirements.
InTEC of San Antonio also performs pier drilling observation and framing inspection.
