FDH Infrastructure Services’ field investigation services are backed by the firm’s innovative nondestructive test methods, which have yielded three U.S. patents and minimized the need for invasive and cost-prohibitive excavation and drilling procedures. While FDH specializes in field investigations of wireless and broadcast sites, the company’s advanced nondestructive testing capabilities have been applied extensively to advanced engineering analyses of bridges, dams, levees, transmission towers, and wind turbines.
FDH’s field investigations group is fully equipped and safety certified. The company is a long-standing member of the NATE STAR Initiative. An activity of the National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE), the STAR Initiative recognizes those companies that adhere to a high level of safety training, accountability, and reliability in its safety programs and site audits. The company’s national network of field technicians are COMTRAIN and/or Gravitec certified.
FDH field engineering crews are also trained and certified tower climbers, directed by licensed professional engineers, and deployed throughout the United States and several U.S. territories.
