SERVICES

Explore our comprehensive range of engineering and inspection services.

Geotechnical Engineering

Soils and foundation engineering are the cornerstone of Piedmont’s reputation and success. Over the last 25 years we have completed subsurface investigations and issued reports on more than 2,500 projects.

Dam Engineering Services

Our senior engineering staff has over six decades of combined experience in evaluating the geotechnical aspect of over 300 dams and reservoirs throughout the Southeastern U.S.

Construction Materials Testing /Special Inspections

With over 5,000 testing and inspection projects over the last 25 years, our engineering staff and inspectors have the experience to handle all types of inspections and tests.

Environmental Engineering

We understand how fundamentally important environmental issues are to every project’s long-term success. Maintaining the highest technical standards, understanding the regulatory requirements and a common sense approach set us apart.

Geotechnical Engineering

Accurate interpretation of complex subsurface conditions and selection of foundation systems are critical to any construction project. Soils and foundation engineering are the cornerstone of Piedmont’s reputation and success. Over the last 25 years we have completed subsurface investigations and issued reports on more than 2,500 projects. With greater experience comes better solutions.
