Material Testing and Construction Quality Control Services

We provide services for accurate determination of representative in-situ material properties, proper selection and design of construction materials, and quality control of construction materials and their compliance with design specifications, including:

Standard, advanced, and custom-designed field and laboratory testing on soil, rock, aggregate, concrete, and asphalt (ASTM, CSA, AASHTO, etc)

Testing, review, interpretation of test results, technical specifications, and mix design for Portland cement concrete, grout, mortar, shotcrete, plastic concrete, soil-cement, lime-treated soil, fly-ash treated soil, RCC (Roller Compacted Concrete), zero slump concrete, and light-weight fills 

We provide construction Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) for concrete construction, earthworks, and other geo-constructions to ensure the construction procedures and materials conform to the design specifications and assumptions, as well as, to the proper construction practices. Some examples include:

Monitoring utility line placement, site grading, and construction of embankments, engineered fills, excavations, and retaining walls

Monitoring driving of steel pile and construction of concrete shafts, caissons, belled piles, Compacto piles, footings, and mat foundations

Rebar and form inspection and testing of fresh and cured concrete for reinforced concrete constructions

Pile load testing, plate load testing, embankment load testing, and proof rolling

Monitoring groundwater fluctuations, pore-water pressures, and seepage flow
