Civil Material Testing Services

Civil materials testing is used to ensure the integrity of infrastructure materials and the safety of the road, building, or area being constructed.

Civil Materials Testing


Our team provides testing both in field and lab settings, with expertise in diverse materials, including soils, asphalt, concrete, masonry, steel, and anchor bolts. Some of our high-profile projects in this area include structures for Explore and More Museum at Canalside, the Arkwright Wind Farm, and the Erie County Harbor Development Corporation.

Non-Destructive Examinations



Non-destructive examination methods allow us to test materials without compromising the structure’s integrity. This requires the effective use of technologies such as radiography, liquid penetrant and magnetic particle testing, welding inspection, ultrasonic thickness testing, remote visual inspection, and ground-penetrating radar.
