Fault Studies

A natural hazard, surface faults adversely affect structures of all types. Identification prior to development can minimize the financial effect on builders and developers. TSI Associate Richard G. Howe, P.G., C.P.G., is an expert in surface fault investigations along the Gulf Coast in Texas and Louisiana and has mapped and studied many of the more than 350 faults crisscrossing the Houston Metropolitan Area. learn more


Environmental Site Assessments

Mandated by "good business sense," Environmental Site Assessments (ESA's) are performed for almost all commercial land transactions. Providing "due diligence" protection to owners when properly done, ESA's ascertain whether any past or present usage of a site warrants an enforced environmental cleanup.

ESA's are conducted in three phases. It is not necessary for all assessments to begin with Phase I, and no two assessments should be the same. learn more
