BHATE is very well respected in our industry.  I’ve been fortunate to have worked on countless projects with them over the years.  The expertise and knowledge of Uday Bhate, Chuck Burgin, and many others within their company is impressive.  Their understanding of subsurface conditions in downtown Birmingham and the greater Birmingham area is very valuable.  Technical expertise, quality subsurface foundation recommendations, and accurate construction materials testing are all strengths of their companyCongratulations on 45 years of successful geotechnical engineering and testing!

During the exploration for the Valley Hotel, BHATE discovered two very different geological conditions.  Most geotechnical engineers would have issued a report and left it to the contractor to figure out.  Uday called me as soon as the report was issued and requested to meet to ensure we understood the issues from his perspective.  We certainly know that Uday was looking out for us. The Developer, after witnessing the conditions encountered during deep foundation installation, appreciates his concern for us all.”

Brian Wolfe, Chief Development Officer
We have faced many complicated geotechnical conditions over the years with BHATE and have come to trust their knowledge, capability, and leadership in guiding our structural engineers and contractors. Our projects benefit from their expertise and creativity as they advise and lead the development team to successful solutions. Without question, we’d recommend BHATE for geotechnical and construction materials testing services.”

“BHATE provided preliminary site exploration to aid the owner in the property selection phase, geotechnical investigations, wetland and stream evaluations, erosion control monitoring and inspections, special inspections, and materials testing for Trussville High School. BHATE aided LBYD in preparing the plans and specifications and provided much assistance on establishing allowances for unforeseen conditions like undercut, groundwater/springs, foundation trench rock, etc. It is always a pleasure to work with BHATE Geosciences on a project. They excel on the difficult projects because of their vast experience and solid technical expertise. Projects like the new Trussville High School are successful because of the “solid ground” they are built upon. This “solid ground” is established and achieved by the excellence BHATE Geosciences strives for on each and every project.”

“BHATE’s availability to work around our schedule, their hands-on approach, field exploration, expedited material testing and lab results were all imperative for us to be able to complete the HealthSouth headquarters for the owner ahead of schedule. They took the lead with regards to field exploration of the existing coal mine entrances, ensuring that they were properly identified, over excavated and replaced with structural fill in order to minimize any associated risk with the previous mining operations of the site. BHATE displayed a high level of expertise, made themselves available any time they were needed, provided direction with regards to unsuitable material, mine reclamation and were an overall integral part of the construction team allowing us to complete our scope ahead of schedule.”
