As an expansion of our services, we are actively cultivating strong relationships with the energy sector in south and west Texas. We have provided preliminary planning and engineering designs that allow for extensive project savings to our clients. IDS is continually working on designs to maximize the efficiency of drilling pads, central truck loading facilities (CTL’s), haul roads, and retention ponds. Our engineers have been working for state and county agencies for several years and know the most efficient way to assist energy firms in obtaining permits and application approvals to keep their critical projects moving. Furthermore, we have completed roadway evaluations to determine safe routes of travel for heavy truck traffic. These evaluations have included detailed reports and traffic counts, as well as modeling in some instances. We have also completed opinions of probable construction cost providing pavement section recommendations while working closely with our geotechnical support resources.
