At CTL|Thompson, we know some projects require an array of services and some require only one or two. From materials testing to structural engineering, foundation design to environmental engineering, CTL|Thompson provides engineering services from the moment a project is conceived through construction and throughout the life of any given project including maintenance or remediation. Please click on a link below to learn about the specific services to meet your needs.
For more information on any of our services or to speak with one of our engineering consultants, please call one of our branch offices.
Geotechnical Engineering and Geologic Studies
CTL|Thompson offers a wide range of geotechnical engineering and geologic studies services, which are offered during preliminary studies, design level investigations and forensic evaluations. These studies represent the core of our practice.
Geotechnical engineering and geologic studies services include:
- Expansive soil evaluation and treatment
- Foundation design
- Slope stability and earth retention systems
- Dam construction and repair
Construction Observation and Testing
With multiple areas of competency including drilled pier installation, site excavation and materials testing, we provide single source construction observations and testing, while helping to expedite the construction process and keep the budget in line.
CTL|Thompson's Colorado environmental engineering team provides services in three areas:
- Property transaction due-diligence services and site investigations
- Mold and moisture control
- Asbestos and lead-based paint surveys
Our unique combination of multi-disciplined professionals addresses the environmental and safety requirements and concerns for development, construction and property management.
CTL|Thompson works with homebuilders, contractors and civil engineers to facilitate develop and implement effective Storm Water Permit compliance programs. We provide our services with the objective of strategically maneuvering our clients through the changing regulatory environment to achieve permit closure and lessen the risk of non-compliance penalties.
Environmental engineering services include:
- Developing Storm Water Management Plans (SWMPs)
- On-site observation and documentation of SWMP implementation
- Reviewing/revising existing plans to adequately address permit requirements
- Quality assurance auditing of storm water documentation prepared by other project team firms
Materials Testing/Laboratory Capabilities
Home to one of the most sophisticated testing laboratories in the country, CTL|Thompson’s scientists and engineers offer a wide range of testing capabilities and receive samples from around the world.
In addition to our specialized testing, our team of engineers and certified field technicians provide construction materials testing services and construction observations services in both residential and commercial projects of any size.
Whether it's for new construction or addressed issues at an existing site, our pavement engineers offer a wide range of services from pavement thickness design to asphalt concrete mixture design. With the capacity to evaluate existing pavements, conduct materials testing and recommend repair or reconstruction alternatives, the pavement engineering department also assists clients with budgeting, bidding and implementation of repairs.
Mining and Subsidence
Our engineers provide expertise on anything from simple geotechnical investigations to more complicated evaluations of sinkholes and backfill settlement to major subsurface mine subsidence mitigation projects.
CTL|Thompson has developed one-of-a-kind analysis techniques for predicting subsidence risk including “Complimentary Influence Functions,” “Discrete Element,” and “Finite Element Analysis” methods.
The structural engineers at CTL|Thompson have more than 50 years of combined experience on more than 5,000 residential, commercial, and industrial projects. Our specialization in soil structure interaction, structural diagnostics, and repairs enables us to better understand new foundations and foundation design. We also understand the importance of fast turn-around time, value engineering, safety and constructability on every project.
Our structural services include:
- Foundation design
- Steel, Concrete, Masonry, and Timber structures
- Retaining walls
Reinforced slabs and mats
