When asked about working for Terra Tek and our unique part of the construction industry, Marvin said.
“Working at Terra Tek gives you a good appreciation for the work that goes into large building projects. From their humble beginnings to the finished article.
Watching events at the Olympics in 2012 and seeing medals won on the same spot you were performing a plate load test not too long ago is fabulous. Or seeing millions of people enjoying the venues and gardens that were banks of dusty soil on a busy site a year or two before. It also gives you the opportunity to bore friends or family when travelling around the country and saying every half an hour, “we tested that.”
Terra Tek has the experts you need if you need help with plate load-bearing tests, Site investigations, or site testing.
