How can cone penetrometer testing (CPT) and other advanced site investigation methods add value to major infrastructure projects?
The FHWA states that “Up to 50 percent of major infrastructure projects suffer impacts to schedule or cost due to geotechnical issues.” Fifty percent!
These massive losses are why the FHWA established Advanced Geotechnical Methods in Exploration (A-GaME). A-GaME is an initiative to provide resources for and educate geotechnical exploration firms and departments of transportation (DOT) about the underutilized and more advanced methods of geotechnical exploration.
As the leading manufacturer of CPT testing equipment, training, and service, Vertek seeks to provide geotechnical firms and DOTs with the latest information related to A-GaME; to include resources for federal funding of CPT operations.
