Retrofit Strategies

Retrofit Strategies

Feasible and economical methods for retrofit need to be devised for facilities that have limited remaining service life. ERTesting can work together with McMahon & Mann Consulting Engineers, P.C. (MMCE) to develop engineering designs, plans and specifications for retrofit or rehabilitation of existing facilities. MMCE is an engineering firm specializing in geotechnical engineering; and the selection, design and construction of earth structures including retaining walls, rock cuts, gravity dams, foundation elements and ground supports.

ERTesting can evaluate the spacial variability of metal loss and corrosion of earth reinforcements to better define specific areas that require retrofit. Considerable cost savings can be realized by taking advantage of the remaining strength and integrity of the initial installation.
