Adapt has been supporting the telecommunication industry with Geotechnical, Environmental, and Engineering Support since the 1980’s, both with new builds and site modification programs. We are known in the telecommunication industry as the “go to” company for expedited, expert, and cost effective support.

General Network Buildout Projects

National Telecommunications Company
Adapt has provided engineering and environmental services to a major national telecommunications company operating in the Pacific Northwest continuously from 2001 until the present. Services have included geotechnical engineering services as well as Phase I Environmental Site Assessments, Phase II Sampling Assessments, NEPA Checklist Reports, NEPA Environmental Assessments, Asbestos and Lead Paint sampling and Soil Resistivity Surveys. The total number of telecommunication sites for this client number greater than 900.

Geotech Projects

Adapt has conducted several thousand telecommunication site geotechnical investigations over the past ten years, ranging from shallow bedrock dig sites to liquefiable drill sites requiring site specific seismic analysis.

In the spring of 2009, Adapt conducted geotechnical investigations at over 40 existing telecommunication sites in Eastern Washington and Oregon for a national commercial telecommunications company. The geotechnical engineering reports were completed in six weeks.

Environmental Site Assessment Projects

Adapt has conducted several thousand Phase I Environmental Site Assessments on telecommunication sites ranging from remote mountaintop sites to industrial sites to urban rooftop sites. All Environmental Site Assessments are completed in accordance with ASTM Standard E 1527-05.

Limited Phase II sampling assessments have been conducted where we believed it was necessary to further assess our client’s potential risk at sites where soil and/or groundwater contamination was suspected and at sites where it was necessary to confirm clean conditions so as to prevent potential exposure to construction workers.

Sampling of Asbestos Containing Building Materials and Lead-Based Paint has been conducted in areas of planned disturbance, such as roof and wall penetrations, in order to prevent unnecessary worker exposure to these materials.

NEPA / SHPO Projects

Adapt has conducted several thousand NEPA Checklist assessments of proposed and existing telecommunication sites, and over one thousand State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) reviews. Project sites have included existing historic buildings requiring a negotiated Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) and mitigation, sites in floodplains, sites on tribal lands and sites with potential archaeological significance.
