In the industrial market, FDH’s project experience spans the petroleum, aviation, warehousing, water, and energy sectors. Clients utilize FDH’s engineering and investigative services when they are preparing to embark on facility renovations or expansions, to improve existing operations, or to troubleshoot structural failures or subsurface anomalies. To help manufacturing plant owners prioritize maintenance and renovation projects, FDH utilizes its patented nondestructive test methods to perform thorough investigations and structural mappings of existing foundations and concrete beams to identify concrete thickness, internal reinforcement, and potential locations for new grade beams and/or pile supports. FDH performs building load studies to help determine the placement of new or updated equipment, such as rooftop HVAC systems and telecommunications structures. FDH can also blend multiple NDT methods with expert analysis to perform complex investigations of underground pipelines and related structures for which as-built drawings no longer exist, as well as identifying leaks or erosion voids that could lead to catastrophic system failure.
FDH’s in-house design, construction administration, and investigative services combine to provide an unmatched, all-inclusive engineering package for its industrial clients, which include Bechtel, Black & Veatch, Exxon/Mobil, Marathon Oil, Honeywell Specialty Materials, Purolator Filters, and Targa Resources.
