Materials Testing and Construction Quality Control Services

We provide services for accurate determination of representative in-situ material properties, proper selection and design of construction materials, and quality control of construction materials and their compliance with design specifications, including:

      • Standard, advanced, and custom-designed field and laboratory testing on soil, rock, aggregate, concrete, and asphalt (ASTM, CSA, AASHTO, etc)
      • Testing, review, interpretation of test results, technical specifications, and mix design for Portland cement concrete, grout, mortar, shotcrete, plastic concrete, soil-cement, lime-treated soil, fly-ash treated soil, RCC (Roller Compacted Concrete), zero slump concrete, and light-weight fills

We provide construction Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) for concrete construction, earthworks, and other geo-constructions to ensure the construction procedures and materials conform to the design specifications and assumptions, as well as, to the proper construction practices. Some examples include:

      • Monitoring utility line placement, site grading, and construction of embankments, engineered fills, excavations, and retaining walls
      • Monitoring driving of steel pile and construction of concrete shafts, caissons, belled piles, CFA piles, Compacto piles, Pile-Rafts, footings, and mat foundations
      • Rebar and form inspection and testing of fresh and cured concrete for reinforced concrete constructions
      • Pile load testing, plate load testing, embankment load testing, and proof rolling
      • Pile inspection, footing inspection, and bearing capacity inspection for residential, commercial, and industrial buildings 
      • Monitoring groundwater fluctuations, pore-water pressures, and seepage flow
      • Concrete testing for structural concrete, plastic concrete, zero slump concrete, light-weight concrete, grout concrete, shotcrete, roller-compacted concrete (RCC), and asphalt concrete. More information on our concrete testing capabilities is presented at Concrete Testing Services

Research, Development, and Unconventional Solutions

At Alpha Adroit, we routinely use the generally accepted industry and local practicesthe conventional solutions when providing our geotechnical engineering, https://www.alphaadroit.ca/services/materials-testing-services.html, concrete testing, and environmental consultingservices to our clients. In many cases, these conventional solutions have been developed over many years and have worked well for the local geology, available local construction technologies, and available local worker skills.

At Alpha Adroit, we also appreciate state-of-the-art practices, innovative solutions, top-notch modern technologies, and expectation-raiser thinking the unconventional solutions to satisfy the demanding challenges of the industries we serve.
