Working under term contract with the City of Raleigh, F&R has contributed to so many of the City’s progressive projects – we have been thrilled to be involved in the redevlopment of Union Station, the design and construction of the massive Downtown Remote Operations Complex and many more parks, recreational facilities, office and public safety facilities. When it was time to design and construct a new law enforcement training center, the City turned to F&R to perform a geotechnical evaluation in support of design and provide materials testing and special inspections during construction.

The new two story steel framed facility will connect to the adjacent Wake County Law Enforcement Training Center. Based on a subsurface exploration and laboratory testing program, F&R’s geotechnical engineers made recommendations for foundation design, retaining wall design and pavement design.

F&R will provide construction materials testing and special inspections as part of the construction phase. Our proposed services include: Observation of grading operations; evaluation of subgrades; laboratory
testing of fill materials; field density testing; foundation bearing grade; foundation reinforcing steel inspection; concrete, mortar, and grout evaluation; compressive strength testing; sprayed-fire-resistant materials inspection and testing; and structural steel inspection.
