Over the past 50 years, Terracon has compiled $1 billion of subsurface characterization data. For years, geotechnical engineers have anticipated subsurface conditions to develop a work scope. Terracon is utilizing the power of GIS-processing to provide clients even more value when using Report of Expected Geotechnical Conditions (REGC) consulting to help within project feasibility studies, site selection, and preliminary budgeting.  With geopractitioners located in more than 150 locations across the country, Terracon is leading our profession into this new way of exploration that begins before we ever get on site.
