GEOTECHNICAL

We approach each project with a unique strategy of maintaining a dynamic presence from initial planning through the final phases of construction, thus providing the opportunity to be actively engaged in innovative engineering and implementation of ideas that ultimately contributes to a successful project. Our experience and dedication to the client, community, innovation and continued education allows our geotechnical engineers, materials engineers and construction quality control teams to become an integral component to the projects process and successful completion.

GEOTECHNICAL DESIGN

Seasoned engineers and inspectors are highly trained to provide services for a variety of public works, municipal, transportation, industrial, commercial, water resources, residential, and environmental projects.

GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING

Our geotechnical engineers understand the impact of the various subsurface conditions can have on the cost, risk, schedule and development of the project. Armed with this knowledge and extensive experience, we are able to approach the project with a commitment to the success of our client’s vision.

CONSTRUCTION TESTING AND INSPECTION QUALITY CONTROL

Our field testing staff is certified through NAQTC (Nevada Alliance for Quality Transportation Construction), ACI (American Concrete Institute), and ICBO (International Council of Building Officials), and our field testing programs and Quality Systems are ASTM C 1077, ASTM D 3666, ASTM 3740, and ASTM E 329 compliant.

BUILDING INSPECTION

ICC (International Code Council) certified building inspectors provide building inspections to supplement local building departments that include structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing inspections for residential and commercial structures.

MATERIALS TESTING

Wood Rodgers is certified in AASHTO Material Referenced Laboratory (AMRL) and Cement and Concrete Referenced Laboratory (CCRL) assessment programs. We provide responsive, accurate and precise materials engineering and testing support throughout design and construction phases of the project.
Our state-of-the-art, ASSHTO accredited Asphalt Binder Testing Laboratory is capable of testing asphalt properties and able to evaluate binder characteristics as required by project specifications.

Project Case Study

Fallon Naval Air Station Housing Community

Fallon, Nevada

For this $76 million project, Wood Rodgers provided Third Party Construction Management including: Plan & Specification Review – 60%, 95% and 100% Civil Plan, Structural Plans Foundation Plans, Project Schedule, SWPPP, and Geotechnical Report. The project involved the demolition of 130 existing units and the demolition and replacement of existing infrastructure and roads within the 229-unit community. Our services include monitoring site development, determining development and construction are completed pursuant to the Fallon Design/Build Agreement, reviewing all applications for payment and requests for construction draws from the Design/Builder and assisting the Owner, certifying acceptance of work upon substantial and final completion of each building or unit as evidenced by receipt of a “Certificate of Occupancy,” and performing a Quality and Safety review.
