Our pavement engineering team combines unmatched experience in planning, design, and construction of high-quality pavement facilities.
Our engineering services:
Pavement Engineering for Design-Build and P3
Pavement designers follow a design method. Our pavement engineers actually engineer the pavement from subgrade to surface to optimize the design, lower the bid price, keep it simple in the field, reduce construction cost and time, and ensure owner approval with a high-quality pavement. We also provide life cycle cost and risk analysis and assist in developing cost-effective MOT (Maintenance of Traffic) pavement strategies, helping to reduce cost and expedite projects.
Life Cycle Advising for P3 Projects
Transtec’s experience and depth of knowledge in pavement engineering means we understand all elements of life cycle analysis for concrete and asphalt pavements. We have significant experience in various rehabilitation strategies for brownfield work, and as leaders in reconstruction and new construction projects. We assess risk using our extensive experience and the latest pavement performance prediction tools to determine rehabilitation intervals which conform to performance criteria. We serve as Advisors to concessionaires and provide strategy development and risk analysis.
Transtec’s engineers design pavements that reduce costs, accelerate construction, and protect clients from risk. We work with clients throughout the US and all over the world.
Pavement Constructability Review
During paving, contractors use our knowledge of materials and paving to optimize phasing and sequencing while matching the field crew’s abilities. We prevent non-compliance events such as grinding, repair, or replacement. We troubleshoot problems and help contractors during challenging conditions. We do Value Engineering.
Pavement Design for Safety, Smoothness, Noise
We are a world leader in pavement surface engineering and testing for safety and performance, including surface texture, smoothness, and noise.
Precast Pavement for Rapid Construction
Our engineers know how to replace an entire roadway in only a few hours, which makes precast pavement a vital tool for rapid repair and construction.
Proper management can dramatically reduce capital expenditures on pavement infrastructure. We have delivered pavement management systems to local and state agencies, and we currently manage over 2,000 miles of pavement for our clients.
We use many types of non-destructive test equipment to evaluate pavements, including Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD), Heavy Weight Deflectometer (HWD), Rolling Dynamic Deflectometer (RDD), Ground-penetrating radar (GPR), Circular Track Meter (CTM), DFT, Highway Friction Tester (HFT), Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP), Pulse Velocity (PV), and many others. With an accurate evaluation, we help owners strategize their expenditures to balance cost and pavement performance.
Transtec has taught non-destructive evaluation (NDE) to dozens of state highway agencies and the Federal Highway Administration. We have delivered NDE services to clients worldwide.
Performance-related specifications and performance-based specifications require expertise in specification development and cooperation from industry stakeholders. We have delivered specification development to many state highway agencies and to the Federal Highway Administration.
When a pavement asset becomes the center of an investigation with the potential to become a legal issue, the reputation and track record of the expert opinion is paramount.
During construction, Quality Assurance (QA) ensures the owner receives the desired final product. Our QA services enable us to work closely with the owner and the contractor to verify excellent final deliverables.
Pavement Smoothness SWAT Team
The Specialized Wisdom And Technology (SWAT) team provides comprehensive paving operation evaluations to identify opportunities for improving pavement smoothness. Transtec offers independent, objective evaluation of materials, equipment, construction operations, and measurement techniques.
