Construction Materials Testing & Inspection

ACCURA works with owners, engineers or contractors to implement engineering recommendations to provide accurate analyses of component materials. ACCURA provides supervision to assure project specifications and quality assurance objectives are met or exceeded.

The knowledge of how the variety of materials to be used will perform is the key to the success of any project. Thus, QC/QA testing and inspection services during construction have become increasingly important as a result of the rapid technological expansion of construction methods and materials.

ACCURA provides dedicated and responsive construction materials testing services. Our engineers and technicians are equipped with vast experience and resources to give each project the attention and detail that is necessary. Construction materials and inspections in which we have extensive experience and knowledge include:

  • Soil
  • Asphalt
  • Concrete
  • Aggregate
  • Rock
  • Geotextile, geogrid
  • Pipe (metal, concrete, plastic)
  • Roofing System
  • Pavement markings
  • Steel (rebar, welding, bolts)
  • Site Preparation and Earthwork Monitoring
  • Pre and Post-Tensioning Inspection
  • Reinforcing Steel Insprection
  • Structural Steel Inspection
  • Roofing Systems Inspection
  • Waterproofing Inspection
  • Fireproofing Inspection

Other Services

GEOTECHNICAL LABORATORY

ACCURA's Geotechnical Laboratory is equipped to perform various testing scopes, which can include but is not limited to Direct Shear, Moisture Content, Atterberg Limits, and Particle Size Analysis with Hydrometer. Testing for local contractors includes geotechnical testing for an internation airport and landfill construction projects as well as treatablility studies for Environmental Protection Agency contractors. The Geotechnical Laboratory utilizes ASTM and AASHTO certified methods.

We are a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers validated and certified laboratory.

ACCURA has worked on many civil and environmental projects for commercial and governmental clients. We have performed testing in support of bench scale, pilot, and full-scale production stabilization and solidification projects for DOE contractors. We are experienced in a variety of bentonite/cement/pozzolan mix designs, including mising, mold preparation, curing, and testing. We have analyzed various mix designs for Leachability Index, Immersion Properties, Radiolytic Exposure, Shrink-Swell, Initial and Final Set Times, Permeability, and Compressive Strength. We are one of the few laboratories int he country with extensive in stabilization adn solidification testing.

ACCURA provides both conventional and highly specialized testing on all types of soils, sludge, solid waste materials, and solidified and stabilized materials.

PAVEMENT MATERIALS

ACCURA offers routine and special testing for design and evaluation services to support our pavement engineering business. Some of our testing capabilities include strength and compressibility; soundness and durability, and measurement of mechanistic parameters such as resilient modulus of soil, aggregate and asphalt concrete.

ACCURA has worked on numerous projects at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in which various material properties have been measure din order to evaluate existing conditions on pavements service aircraft.

This unique blend of testing capabilities are necessary for quality assurance or quality control functions during construction, but are also valuable for prequalification evaluation and post construction performance monitoring.

The testing capabilites include those common for soil, asphalt, concrete and stabilized materials (such as soil-cement, soil-lime, foamed asphalt, cement or asphalt treated base, and recycled materials). Our capabilites and professional expertise bring a value-added capability in that mechanistic parameters can be measured and true life cycle cost analyses can be performed when comparing various alternatives and the cost impact of each.
