About Us

Background & Business Activities

In June 1998, Mr. Valencia formed the Valencia Technology Group, L.L.C. (VTG) to provide Engineering and Professional Services to long-term clients, particularly Edwards Air Force Base in California and local public agencies in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area. Mr. Valencia has been doing Engineering Consulting Work at Edwards Air Force Base since 1987 when he developed and built the Automated Cone Penetrometer (ACP) to test and certify lakebed runways for use by the Space Shuttle as well as other Air Force high performance aircrafts.

The firm’s specialty is the design of pavements including streets, roads and airfields as well as the management of pavement and related infrastructures through the development of maintenance and rehabilitation (M&R) programs, material characterization for durability and cost effectiveness and the use of the proprietary Roadway and Asset Management Systems (RAMS). VTG was the first consultant to be fully compliant with GIS submittal requirements at EAFB.

VTG has also strategic partnership agreements with other firms that allow us to work jointly on projects in which the combined expertise is desirable; this partnership complements our capabilities in areas such as surveying and specialty engineering, while maintaining our small firm philosophy and low overhead that our clients have grown accustomed. Most of our pavement related work is done by in-house personnel.

Our in-house resources include the latest equipment and software for in-house and field work including our own ped Infra Structure Management System, pavement design and other specialty applications.

Our field crew uses a fully equipped SUVs for road inspection and testing including coring and testing of the base, using the Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP). Handheld tablets are used for field data entry and analysis as well as speedy generation of reports.

For specialized project, VTG uses several well-qualified consultants on a project basis. Through our strategic partnership with other engineering firms, we have also access to timely surveying services as well as expertise in the areas of Structural, Sanitary, and Environmental Engineering.
