Our Materials testing in-house laboratories, staffed by geologists and materials Technicians provide a strong asset to any civil, environmental or Geo-Technical Engineering Team.
Inferior or inadequate construction materials pose the greatest nightmares for civil engineers. For over 15 years, SETS has worked for owners and their representatives, reconciling construction materials brought to construction sites by general contractors with specific design parameters for individual structures. We have ensured longevity of clients’ structures through prudent on-site construction materials testing and saved general contractors millions of dollars by aborting repeat work through accurate and one time testing of supplied construction materials.
