Testing Capabilities

Wherever you operate, our expert scientists can support you with a wide range of material testing capabilities

Our testing laboratory provides support to our consulting and field inspection services, while providing forensic and testing services to our clients worldwide. We work closely with ASTM in the development of test methods, testing guidelines, and specifications.

Certified structural, metallurgical, concrete, geological and materials engineers assess, investigate and develop solutions for structures of all sizes and complexities.  These evaluations include both destructive and non-destructive testing. Non-destructive testing (NDT) methods, including Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Impact Echo, Pulse Velocity, and Half Cell Potential, play a crucial role in evaluating the condition and integrity of structures. These techniques provide valuable insights into potential defects, corrosion, and the overall health of various construction materials. Here’s a summary of each method and their applications:

Our team of experienced geologists and petrographers specializes in providing tailored solutions for the construction industry.
