9.3- Highway Materials Testing
HighSpans Engineering owns and operates its own in-house materials testing laboratory. This laboratory is capable of running the majority of materials testing that will be encountered in a FDOT roadway project. It is accredited by both FDOT and CMEC for soils and concrete materials testing and testing can be performed in accordance with either ASTM, AASHTO, or FDOT testing procedures. In accordance with FDOT guidelines, HighSpans Engineering can process both quality control and verification testing. All tests are performed by fully qualified and experienced personnel in a timely manner while ensuring accurate and precise results as all testing is done fully in compliance with the requested test method and agency. Because HighSpans Engineering is a CEI firm and maintains a CMEC qualified laboratory, there are extra requirements that apply to CEI inspections. All technicians performing testing, whether in the field or lab, are trained and tested every 6 months. This frequent testing ensures technicians are qualified, experienced, and up to date on the latest test methods.
