APTLY -- Alliance of Pile Testing LaboratorY Engineers
APTLY, 5 del Valle, Orinda, California 94563 (510) 254-0460
An organization of professional firms/individuals engaged in onsite testing and evaluation
of deep foundations (driven piles, drilled shafts...). Members use dynamic,static and/or
geophysical methods to investigate problems of structural integrity, installation
conditions, and loading capacities of the deep foundation elements. The APTLY website
includes member (e-mail and website) addresses, industry vendor addresses, and postings of
interest to the global pile testing community and other foundation engineers and builders.
