Wind Turbine Projects

Various Locations, Northeastern United States

Wind Turbine ProjectsWith continued advances in wind turbine technology, the harnessing of wind power has become a fast-growing alternative energy source.

ATL has extensive experience with wind power projects having provided services for over 25 Wind Turbine Projects located throughout the Northeast.

Wind projects involve heavy civil work including construction of access roads, massive reinforced concrete turbine foundations, erection of tower and generator components, integration of electrical collection systems, and construction of various substation and support facilities.

These projects presented numerous logistical challenges, operate under strict construction schedules, and demand quick turn-around times for field and laboratory test results. ATL has repeatedly demonstrated an ability to deliver a quality service for our wind clients, regardless of geographic location and/or impediments.

Our team is dedicated to meeting project requirements, providing integrated and comprehensive services that assist our clients in meeting the complex challenges associated with Wind Turbine Projects.

Services provided included:

  • Subsurface investigation and geotechnical engineering services associated with tower foundations, transmission routes, substations, etc.
  • Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan Monitoring (SWPPP)
  • Preconstruction testing and verification of various construction materials
  • Foundation subgrade bearing capacity evaluation and verification
  • Foundation base and pedestal reinforcing steel inspection and verification
  • Foundation base and pedestal concrete materials field and laboratory testing

Cornell University – Multiple Projects

Ithaca, New York

Key Project: Cornell - ConstructionCornell University consists of seven colleges and two satellite medical campuses. The main campus is located on 745 acres that house some 260 university buildings including administrative buildings, academic buildings, laboratories, auditoriums, museums, and athletic facilities.

The university’s master plan has provided a framework for its long range development that includes renovation and expansion to existing facilities, and construction initiatives in support of the continued development of academic, residential, support, and recreational facilities.

Key Project: Cornell - FinalATL has provided technical support services to the university on numerous multi-million dollar projects including, Martha Van Rensselaer Hall, Mann Library, Lake Source Cooling Project, Duffield Hall, Ornithology Laboratory, West Campus Residential Initiative, Ergonomics Building, Plant Science Facility, School of Hotel Administration, Surge I Facility, East Campus Research Facility, Physical Sciences Building, Animal Health Diagnostics Center, Unified Health Services Building, and miscellaneous other campus improvement projects.

Cornell’s in-house project management team is diligent in ensuring that comprehensive testing and evaluation services are provided throughout construction of each project. Renovation projects on the campus often involve alterations to multi-story buildings with unique configurations. New construction on the campus typically involves complex designs using innovative construction materials and advanced construction techniques. All of these factors make Cornell a challenging environment to provide services.

ATL takes pride in being able to meet the demands and expectations of each Cornell Project we work on. Through commitment, hard-work and good communication, ATL has developed a solid reputation for providing quality services during initiatives on Cornell’s prestigious campus.

Services provided for Cornell projects have included:

  • Special Inspection Services
  • Construction Materials Engineering and Testing
