CTL/Thompson Expands Facilities in Fort Collins

by Tracy Henderson

June, 2014

(FORT COLLINS, Colo. – June 5, 2014) CTL|Thompson (CTL), a full-service geotechnical, structural, environmental and materials engineering firm, will relocate its Fort Collins office to accommodate a growing staff and to better accommodate the firm's technical operations.

The new space will be located at 400 N. Link Lane, just east of the company's current location on Linden Street.

To accommodate expansion of both its laboratory and field operations, CTL will relocate in two phases. Lab technicians relocated in April, and the engineering department and associated staff will move late this summer. When the move is complete, the approximately 11,000-square-foot office and laboratory facility will house a staff of over 26 engineers, technicians and administrative staff who will continue to provide engineering expertise and support throughout northern Colorado.

"Our expansion reflects the growing northern Colorado economy while also delivering the high level of service and expertise our clients have come to expect," said Fort Collins branch manager Wayne Thompson. "Moreover, the new space allows CTL to improve and enhance our helical pier and screw pile testing abilities."

CTL's Fort Collins office is the only materials testing laboratory in the world accredited by the International Accreditation Services (IAS) to test helical piers, the structures that stabilize deep foundations for large buildings and transportation projects. To support that program, the lab houses a high-capacity torque machine, capable of applying a torque of 1 million inch pounds.

The top-flight engineering team has worked on some of the city's highest-profile projects, including a $19 million facility expansion to wireless manufacturer Avago Technologies' campus on the southeast side of town, and readying the ground for the 5-mile trail planned for the Mason Corridor, combining bicycle and pedestrian access with MAX Bus Rapid Transit (BRT).
