The Foundation Performance Association (FPA) is a professional organization dedicated to advancing the knowledge, performance, and standards of engineering, construction, and repairs related to foundations, soils, and structures.
The targeted membership
of the Foundation Performance Association includes structural and geotechnical
engineers, forensic engineers and consultants, architects, designers, builders, inspectors, and repair contractors
actively engaged in the design, engineering, construction, inspection,
assessment, and repair of lightly loaded foundations in Texas. Also targeted
are students, product manufacturers, vendors,
developers, attorneys, warrantors, realtors, lenders, appraisers, insurers,
and other professionals involved in foundation maintenance, materials,
litigation, warranty, finance, insurance, and other aspects of the residential
and nonresidential low-rise building industry.
To accomplish our
mission we will:
Provide and maintain
a nonprofit technical organization with appropriate bylaws for the targeted
open technical meetings, seminars, and other events in order to educate
our targeted membership and the public, to promote the improvement in
foundation performance, and to elevate the standards and ethics of those
engaged in the foundation industry for residential and other low-rise
with appropriate rules and peer review, with the goal of researching
and writing documents such as guides and recommended practices that
are beneficial to our targeted membership and the public.
Publish our documents
through a website, making them available to our targeted membership
and the public.
