Materials Testing

There are many methods by which ESP contributes to the success of projects. One of these is monitoring the quality of materials used from the beginning to the end of the construction phase.ESP Associates, P.A., provides material testing services during the construction of a project as part of the site quality control and quality assurance efforts.

These services are provided by our engineering technicians who are certified by the American Concrete Institute (ACI), The National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET), Independent Code Council (ICC), American Welding Society (AWS), American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), and/or Departments of Transportation, to name a few.

Our experienced project managers supervise our testing services and maintain relationships with our clientele throughout the construction process. Laboratory testing is performed in our in-house laboratory, accredited by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).

This accreditation involves a thorough inspection of our laboratory equipment and procedures by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials at periodic timeframes.
