Foundation Test Group has the engineering know-how, experience and equipment for all your load testing needsEach year we complete over a hundred load tests of different foundation types or test methods. FTG performs load tests on drilled shafts, auger cast in place piles, micropiles, driven pilesanchors and tiebacks. We can either self-perform or design load test programs for most site conditions and requirements.

We utilize load testing as a method of enhancing each of our designs to provide cost effective, time efficient design and construction.

Load Test Design

The most important aspect of foundation load testing design is not being confined to  one methodology.  FTG is experienced in the design, performance and analysis of static,  dynamic, bi-directional and Statnamic load testing. As a result of this experience, we are  uniquely qualified to design the optimal load test for any project need.  We routinely  take the clients goals for the foundation design and testing, apply the best methodology  to maximize test performance and implement cost savings for both the owners and  their contractors. 

Utilizing this methodology increases efficiency and performance while assuring that the client’s site-specific needs and load capacity requirements are prioritized.
