accomplishments in the Engineering and Management of Large International Infrastructure Projects.
The two Concerns that were merged to form Foundation Specialists, had, over the years dedicated to develop and manage the planning
and construction of large Underground Hydropower Schemes, including Pump-Storage Hydropower
Plants, in difficult geological and geomorphological conditions. managed through theoretical and field R & D to fine tune
field applications of Geotechnical and Foundation Engineering, Soil and Rock Mechanics and develop Construction Methods and
Technologies applicable to general conditions.
Because of the way it was formed, Foundation Specialists started “ab initio” as a
leader in its consolidated fields of expertise, i.e. large, complex infrastructure projects with important foundation-engineering-related
Foundation Specialists , over
the years has participated either as Contractor or as JV Partner, a number of power generation projects, and in particular
Large HYDROPOWER Projects, including PUMP-STORAGE HYDROPOWER SCHEMES, MINIHYDRO Projects, GAS-TURBINES Plants, including Mooring
Facilities for Large Barge-Mounted Gas Turbine Schemes, OIL-FIRED & COAL-FIRED Plants, BIOGAS POWER PLANTS (Burning
Methane Gas from Large Landfill) SOLAR POWER and WIND POWER SCHEMES, GEOTHERMAL POWER SCHEMES, in the Philippines and various
Foundation Specialists has continued for the past three decades to be a
successful contractor of large infrastructure projects with sensitive Soil Mechanics & Foundation Engineering
related component, and a recognized leader in the field of Foundation Engineering applications, Deep Foundation works , Bridges & Bridge-related Engineering
Works, Bridge Retrofitting, Soil Remediation, Large Excavations under the water table, Hydro-Structures and in the Design-&-Development of Construction
Methodologies and Technologies, both "ad hoc" (i.e. for specific project) and for general application.
Foundation Specialists has been
successfully engaged in a multitude of POWER GENERATION Schemes, including Projects utilizing alternative energy sources
and in particular RENEWABLE CLEAN ENERGY SOURCES such as HydroPower, GeoThermal Power, Solar Power, Wind Power, and HYDROPOWER
STORAGE done by Replenishing water reservoirs by use of reversble PUMP-TURBINES.
FS has completed many Power Transmission
Lines as well, including Power Lines located in areas with difficult soil conditions, swamps, Lahar affected areas.
Foundation Specialists is quite active in projects located in coastal areas, including reclamation areas, with
high seismicity and difficult soil conditions, bridge construction, ports & harbor works, industrial plants,
Telecom outside plants, power generation and power transmission, mass-transit systems, roads & highways, road tunneling
and infra development in general, in South-East Asia, Middle East, Africa and Australasia, where FS operates alone or in Joint
Venture, Consortium and Association with other Companies.
Aside from Project-based J.V.,
