Construction Materials Testing

Our services include all aspects of construction quality control testing. Structural integrity is only as dependable as the materials used in construction. We perform construction quality control testing of soils, concrete, asphalt, masonry, and steel.

We help determine the best and most economical design and construction recommendation solutions when sites contain poor soil conditions. Construction quality assurance oversight is important to ensure a geotechnical feature is successfully completed per the design specifications. We routinely provide these services, including embankment material selection and compaction, drainage system installation, anchor load tests, and observation of retention system installation.

Our engineers can provide a full range of engineering services involving testing and observation of construction materials and practices and design services, and condition assessments that require special expertise.
