What is Thurber’s approach to project management and client communication?

For each project, we assemble a team of people with the appropriate combination of training and experience for the assignment.  A senior professional heads up the team, providing technical input and assuming overall responsibility for the project.  We work closely with our clients through to project completion, and are always sensitive to their needs.

We are very proud to have contributed to many notable projects in a wide variety of environments and sectors, over more than 50 years.  The photos on this site show some of those projects; however please contact our branch managers if you need additional information.

What is PDA?

PDA (Pile Driving Analysis) is a test we perform to control and monitor the pile driving process, and to obtain estimates of pile capacity.  Thurber has PDA systems which use combined sensors to collect the data required to confirm pile capacity and optimize pile lengths.  For more information, please email dtara@thurber.ca or rclementino@thurber.ca
