Nicholson Expansion

Nicholson Expansion Nicholson Construction Co., headquartered in Pittsburgh, has acquired Advanced Foundation Systems Inc., a geotechnical contractor located in Denver. The acquisition strengthens Nicholson's position in the western United States, where Advanced Foundation Systems has completed numerous earth retention, piling and ground improvement projects.

"This acquisition of a sister company from within the Soletanche Freyssinet Group carrying out similar techniques to Nicholson better aligns our resources, and continues our geographical expansion across the country," says Nicholson president Andrew Walker.

Throughout the Rocky Mountains, Advanced Foundation Systems has established a reputation for developing innovative geotechnical solutions related to earth retention, piling and ground improvement. Noted projects include the Beartooth Highway in Montana, Keystone Climbing Lane near Telluride, Colo., and the RTD Fastracks project in Denver.

"Operating as Nicholson's new Denver office will allow us to broaden our technical capabilities, and offer our existing and new clients a full range of geotechnical construction techniques," says Pat West, president of Advanced Foundation Systems.

The Denver office becomes the third office in Nicholson's expanding western district that includes offices in Salt Lake City and Austin, Texas.

The Denver office is located at 7108 S. Alton Way, Bldg. D, Centennial, Colo. 80112. The telephone number is 303-926-0411. Pat West is the branch manager.300 for non-members.
