Industrial, manufacturing, and warehouse/distribution facilities can be some of the most complex and multifaceted design and construction projects around. Regardless of the project size or type of facility, Western Technologies delivers responsive, professional service.
Western Technologies offers geotechnical, environmental, materials testing, and nondestructive testing services for all types of industrial facilities and buildings. For example, some specialized warehousing and manufacturing operations require extraordinary flat and level floors (super-flat) for proper equipment performance. Another example is the trend for distribution facilities to be larger and taller, putting additional demands on the design of the subgrade and foundation, concrete mixes, and concrete placement observation and testing. Another type of facilities is one that uses large, stationary machinery requiring the subgrade to be engineered and the foundations and slabs designed and constructed to withstand not only the weight of the heavy machinery but the vibration (dynamic load) as well. We have become experts at meeting the specific needs and requirements of industrial facility and infrastructure development.
