Construction Materials Engineering and Testing is a critical component in the process of taking a structure off the blueprint and making it a reality. Our clients have come to depend on HSA’s materials engineering and testing staff of professionals to protect their interests during the final design and the construction phases of their projects. HSA maintains multi-faceted modern materials testing laboratories equipped with soils testing equipment such as strength and compaction devices, sieves, scales, ovens, soil classification stations, molds, and other equipment necessary to provide moisture content, bearing ratios, density data, boring data for soils and rock, and asphalt testing. At HSA, we are acutely aware that inaccurate subsurface/geological evaluations and construction delays translate into extra costs. Our team of engineers and engineering technicians help our clients anticipate and minimize potential issues and delays.
As a client, you can expect rapid, individualized response and defensible, accurate results when contracting for construction materials testing. We specialize in testing and analysis of the properties and performance behavior of soils and mechanical, hydraulic and physical testing of all forms of materials used in the construction development industries. HSA works as part of your construction team to keep your project on track. Our firm brings wide-ranging experience in materials engineering evaluation, testing and inspection to every project.
Our construction materials engineering and testing credentials speak for themselves. Our professional staff in each office location includes registered engineers having vast experience and understanding of local materials and construction practices. Our technicians are certified by the American Concrete Institute, the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies, the American Welding Society, the International Code Council, and multiple Departments of Transportation. Our materials testing laboratories are accredited by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials and the Construction Materials Engineering Council.
