FTC Featured Project - the Paseo Bridge Project
 

Paseo Bridge Project

FTC has provided dynamic pile testing services for steel H-pile and square pre-cast concrete pile for Paseo Corridor Constructions on the Paseo Bridge Project also known as kcICON.  This project involves the replacement of the existing Paseo bridge and the reconstruction or addition of numerous approach bridges at part of the $245 million design build effort.  FTC utilized a wireless PDA system for data collection which reduced the time required for each dynamic pile test.

FTC’s involvement is this project was included in article that was part of the Kansas City Business Journal’s Engineer’s Week Supplement published in February 2009.  In that article, Mr. Todd Owens, Structures Manager for Clarkson Construction (part of Paseo Corridor Constructors) stated “What was important to us was not only a consultant that understood the theory behind the equipment and the process, but was able to quickly and effectively interpret the data in the field using good engineering judgment. FTC exceeded our expectations in this regard, allowing us to be more productive in our pile driving operations.”
