Construction Phase Services are a large component of our business. We maintain a core group of trained and certified testing technicians and construction representatives that will check compliance of the project with the plans and specifications, record and document the contractor’s activities, prepare related reports, and serve as the Project Engineer’s liaison with the contractor.
Testing services are divided into three general categories-laboratory, field, and manufactured materials. Laboratory testing will be accomplished by a trained CGA technician with proper accreditation to satisfy the authoritative body’s requirements. Field testing will be accomplished by the resident observer and will include various field quality tests along with the collection of samples for laboratory testing. Manufactured materials such as joint sealer and pavement reinforcing materials will be accepted based on the vendor’s certification that the materials meet specifications.
