Construction materials testing (CMT) and special inspection are crucial processes in the construction process aimed at ensuring that materials used in construction projects meet specified standards; and that construction work adheres to relevant building codes, regulations, and project specifications. These processes help maintain the quality, safety, and integrity of structures during and after construction. We offer a wide array of testing and inspection services, mainly geared towards the following materials:
Concrete is THE most popular material used in construction today. Concrete testing and inspection is done to assess properties such as compressive strength, workability, air content, and durability. This ensures that the concrete meets the design specifications and can withstand the intended loads. Often times our concrete inspections and testing couple with rebar inspection at the same time.
Soil testing and inspection is another popular service area for our construction department. Soil testing and inspection helps determine bearing capacity, maximum density, compaction, and soil classification.
We are also certified to test and inspect Asphalt, Aggregates, Steel and Masonry.
Construction materials testing is carried out by our team of certified technicians and results of testing inform decisions during the construction process and ensure materials are both used appropriately and conform to project specifications.
Special inspection involves on-site inspections and verification of construction work and materials to ensure compliance with building codes, project specifications and safety standards. Special inspectors are trained and certified inspectors.
Special inspection is typically required for specific construction activities or components, such as Welding, Concrete Placement, Masonry Construction, Structural Steel Erection, fireproofing, and Geotechnical Inspections.
Budinger has an excellent reputation for providing professional construction materials testing and special inspection.
