Terratec is a specialty structural soils and foundation stabilization company incorporated in 1982 in Columbia, South Carolina by founders Margaret and Pete Morrison. Originally organized and equipped as a ground anchor, helical pier, and cementitious and chemical injection grouting company, the firm quickly grew into the structural retrofitting organization it is today. Eighty percent of Terratec’s business is in specialty and/or structural geotechnical work.
