Our Engineering Service Capabilities
At ECS, we pride ourselves on providing consultation in a wide range of areas, including evaluations, natural resources, environmental and code compliance. While other firms may only offer a few services, we are a one-stop shop and can provide consulting services throughout the lifecycle of your project.
As geotechnical engineering consultants, we combine physics and geology to provide a solid foundation for buildings, roads and other structures. Our engineers understand systems and building materials at a basic level and perform considerable field work. We will analyze your building site to identify its stability and load capacity.
Our geotechnical engineering consulting services in Chantilly include:
- Due diligence and planning
- Operations and maintenance
Construction Materials Testing
The quality of the materials you use in construction affects the final product and determines compliance. ECS can act as your third-party testing team in Chantilly. We aim to confirm material quality before your project begins.
During construction materials testing, we test the structural materials you will use to build a project from the ground up or materials you may use during an addition or renovation. Examples of the tests we perform include:
- Destructive and non-destructive concrete testing
- Wood construction observations
- Structural masonry
- Shallow and deep foundations
- Structural steel
- Asphalt pavement evaluation and testing
- Roofing evaluation and testing
- Exterior insulation and finish systems
Before you start a construction project, you need to evaluate the natural environment and your project’s impact on the area. If necessary, you can find ways to protect the environment and minimize your impact. ECS offers documentation reviews, wetland assessments, soil testing and other environmental consulting services to our clients in Northern Virginia.
We want to help you develop projects that are efficient and functional. Our facility consulting services can stretch across the life of your project, from planning to maintenance. We will work with you to help you reach building performance, sustainability and compliance goals.
