Several of our field technicians have either a degree in engineering, geology or a related field, which gives us the edge over some of our competitors in this field. In addition, our field technicians hold various certifications including: Troxler, ACI, NECEPT and NICET certifications. We also have an AWS certified welding inspector on staff to complete structural steel inspection (welds, connections and bolts). nuclear densometerOur team of trained, experienced field technicians take a “hands-on”, proactive approach to providing construction monitoring and material testing services. This approach allows us to resolved construction issues promptly as they arise, in order to maintain construction schedules without unnecessary additional costs. For each construction monitoring project, an appointed project engineer/manger selects one of our trained, certified, and experienced field technicians for the field monitoring portion of the work. The field technician coordinates with the project superintendent and/or contractor foreman to schedule site visits to ensure that all work is performed per the applicable project drawings and specifications. When necessary, the field technician will make suggestions to the contractors to correct any deficiencies that are observed. Site visits are documented in daily field reports detailing the work completed and summarizing all test results. The project engineer/manager is in constant communication with the field technician, reviews all field reports and is always available to provide additional recommendations when technical solutions are warranted.

Concrete Testing

Concrete testing is conducted in the field to ensure that the material delivered to site meets the project specifications.. Standard field testing procedures include monitoring of; slump, air content, and temperature. Test cylinders are also prepared in the field for future curing and compressive strength testing.
