When ECS started in 1988, we aimed to raise professional consulting engineering standards. We accomplished this by hiring industry professionals who deeply understood building and infrastructure complexities. Since then, we have continued to provide consultation services to clients across the US, including Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We are your one-stop shop for engineering consulting during construction.
We are committed to delivering excellent service, whether we provide environmental, facilities or geotechnical engineering consulting.
Our Engineering Service Capabilities
Our engineering consulting services cover multiple areas, including:
- Due diligence and planning
- Operations and maintenance
We are dedicated to constantly communicating with our clients and providing centralized project management. We assign a National Account Manager to our National Accounts who advocates for you throughout your project.
Our geotechnical engineering consulting services evaluate soil conditions beneath a building project. We understand that what is beneath the soil is as important for structural integrity as what is on top.
Geotechnical engineering consultants use physics and geology principles to develop solid foundations for various structures in Pittsburgh. Examples of the tests our engineers perform include:
- Geotechnical lab testing
- Groundwater evaluation
- Seismic analysis
- Earth retention systems
- Retaining wall design
- In-situ testing
- Geostructural design
- Karst evaluations
Construction Materials Testing
Our construction materials testing services provide reports quickly, usually within 24 to 36 hours. Materials testing is important for verifying the overall quality of the materials and the finished product. We test materials for new construction or renovation projects to keep you in compliance and improve the quality of the final product.
Construction materials tests we perform in the Pittsburgh area include:
- IBC Chapter 17 Special Inspections
- Observation services
- Floor flatness/Floor levelness testing
- Third-party code compliance
- Fmin testing
- Crack monitoring
- Windsor probe testing
- Rebound hammer testing
- Gloss meter testing
- SWPPP observations
- Ultrasonic testing
The environment matters now more than ever. You want to protect it throughout a construction project and reduce your impact on the surrounding ecosystem. Through our environmental consulting services, we help you comply with regulations. We can also make recommendations and offer remediation to mitigate and remove contaminants.
Use our environmental consulting services as part of your due diligence before starting a project. You can also work with us for conservation, including natural area assessment at the beginning. Additional consulting services include wetland delineations, brownfield investigations and industrial hygiene services.
Our facility consulting services can start from the planning phase of your project and extend through the maintenance and operations phase. Facilities consulting provides solutions to building performance, sustainability and compliance goals.
During the planning consultation process, we aim to address the development stages of your project. In facility design, we examine structural engineering factors. In the construction phase, we provide quality assurance. Finally, our facility management services offer project quality evaluation over an extended period.
