Materials Testing and Consulting Inc., a geotechnical engineering and construction inspection firm, has relocated its northwest division headquarters to Dupont Street in downtown Bellingham.
The company’s Bellingham office was previously located in the city’s Irongate District. MTC has additional offices in Burlington, Olympia and Silverdale.
“The goal of MTC’s relocation is to strengthen and expand our relationships with the Bellingham-area engineering and architectural community by offering greater accessibility to our services and increased opportunity for collaboration,” said Andy Wiser, the company’s northwest division manager, in a press release.
The company provides geotechnical engineering, materials testing and special inspection services to the construction industry throughout Western Washington. It also operates mobile laboratories capable of providing project-specific materials testing services.
MTC works with local municipalities and regional agencies, engineering and architectural firms, general contractors and private developers to minimize risk associated with site development and construction activities.
The company has been in business for more than 30 years and employs 53 people.
The Bellingham office, which is located in the Bellingham Legal Center Complex at 805 Dupont St., Suite 5, has been in operation for more than a decade, and the company has been locally owned and operated since 1995.
