Every construction project should be approached with a fresh perspective and attention to the challenges at hand. APC Construction is a heavy civil construction company that does just that, putting our clients and their projects at the forefront of our decisions. With a dynamic and solutions-driven approach, we adapt our tactics based on the needs of the project at hand. This enables us to focus on the challenging aspects of any heavy civil construction project and find efficient and effective solutions.
Our project portfolio has prepared us for jobs of any size, scope and scale. From federal entities such as the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers to a range of high-profile private, industrial clients, APC’s heavy civil construction experience has equipped our team to safely deliver quality, consistent results. APC Construction pairs a capable and experienced team with a company-owned fleet of equipment that enables cost and time savings on all technical aspects of heavy civil construction, including:
APC has the capability to perform supplemental subsurface investigations using Cone Penetration Testing (CPT) methods with our own 20-ton capable unit. CPT is a widely used method to evaluate subsurface conditions, particularly for deep foundation design. CPT involves hydraulically pushing an instrumented probe (cone) into the soil at a constant rate. As the cone is advanced, strain gages embedded in the cone body continuously measure the tip resistance and side friction. Additionally, a piezometer element behind the cone tip measures the pore water pressure in the soil.
The collected CPT data is used to optimize existing deep foundation designs as well as to evaluate possible VE (Value Engineering) foundation alternatives such as helical piles or our patented TYGER pile system.
CPT provides the following advantages over conventional soil test borings:
