I am delighted to recommend DHDC Engineering Consulting Services as a qualified firm to provide Geotechnical, Subsurface Utilities Engineering (SUE), construction materials testing, and inspection services. DHDC Engineering has successfully provided those services to the City of Columbus for the last few years. DHDC Engineering has attention to detail in mind, and always provides high quality work. DHDC Engineering has played a key factor to the success of many of our projects and we look forward to working with them in the near future.
In 2012 and 2013, DHDC performed soil borings and submitted a Geotechnical Subsurface Investigation Report for a proposed storm sewer casing under CSX RR along Trabue Road; In 2016, DHDC performed soil borings for Thoburn Road Improvements following ODOT Geotechnical Procedures. Savvas Sophocleous was our main point of contact at DHDC. Savvas' reports for both projects were complete, accurate, and delivered early. He was always quick to respond to questions and requests, and he provided very good service! The fees DHDC charged were reasonable and fair. We recommend DHDC for their high quality geotechnical engineering services,and look forward to working with them again!
DHDC has been providing construction materials testing services along with other various engineering/construction services to the City of Upper Arlington for the past decade. DHDC provides us with quick responses to our needs and at the same time provides us with the lowest prices available. In working for government entities, it is rare to find such excellent customer service at the low bid pricing that DHDC can provide. For these reasons, I expect that DHDC will continue to be our top choice for construction materials testing and other related consulting services for a long time in the future.
At DHDC Engineering Consulting we care about our clients. We have worked hard to establish lasting relationships that go beyond merely making a profit.
