For 36 years, Maine economic and real estate development professionals, engineers and architects have relied on the professionals at S. W. Cole Engineering, Inc. (S.W.COLE) Headquartered in Bangor, the firm specializes in earth-related services and has regional offices in Augusta, Caribou and Gray as well as in Manchester and Somersworth, New Hampshire, and White River Junction and Burlington, Vermont.
S.W.COLE provides services in three major areas:
- Geotechnical engineering (soil and foundation engineering)
- Construction materials testing (QA / QC testing of soil, aggregate materials, concrete and asphalt testing, special inspections)
- Geoenvironmental consulting (environmental site assessments, Brownfield studies, voluntary response action plans, geology)
S.W.COLE’s unique combination of services enables the firm to assist a client from project inception through construction. Quite often, our involvement with a project starts with project planning and site selection services – phase I environmental site assessments, environmental compliance monitoring and geotechnical engineering – and continues through construction of the project with pre-blast surveys, field and laboratory testing of soil, concrete, masonry and pavement, or working with the project structural engineer to provide special inspections. Our clients benefit from working with one firm that can provide each of these essential services through one point of contact.
With more than three decades of experience, the firm’s expertise is evident on projects that have been completed in every corner of Northern New England. From retail projects to subdivisions, highways to schools, the firm’s projects dot the local landscape. The firm has been involved in many redevelopment projects in urban areas and has extensive experience with the Maine VRAP program. S.W.COLE also has experience with geothermal wells that are being installed on an increasing number of institutional, commercial and multi-unit residential projects throughout New England.
