The building is designed with 5,000 square feet of new office space along with technical work spaces, fabrication shops, and storage areas. TDI-Brooks technical staff plans to move into the building by the end of the year. “This new location will not only allow for the growth of staff we’ve employed to keep up with the growing demand for our technical services in offshore wind, it will allow further space for fabrication and storage of our geotechnical tools designed for seafloor surveys,” said Daniel Brooks, director of Technical Systems and CPT Specialist.
