Proficiency testing is conducted regularly by CCRL and AMRL for all tests within our certifications.

Under the supervision of PE's, laboratory managers direct a staff of technicians with certifications by NICET, ACI, USACE CM Quality Management, MARTCP, VDOT, FAA-ERLPM, and WACEL. All procedures are performed in accordance with a QA/QC Laboratory Manual that is approved by the certifying agencies.

Resources allow high volume and quick turnaround of a comprehensive array of tests including soils, rock, concrete, aggregate, asphalt, unit masonry, CIPP, fireproofing, and water tests.  Advanced geotechnical tests are performed on fully automated research-grade apparatus resulting in exceptionally rapid and error-free detailed test reports.  This automation permits the cost effective generation of highly sophisticated test results.  Computer generated reports and data can be transmitted electronically at the client's request.
