MEA’s in-house Materials Testing Laboratory provides the client with technically superior testing because MEA engineers monitor the tests. By analyzing the construction materials and designing the material specifications in-house, it allows the entire design phase of the project to be under the scrutiny of MEA’s professional engineering staff. As a result of this, MEA’s clients obtain a high quality product and accurate testing results.
MEA’s in-house Soil and Rock Mechanics Laboratory also provides superior testing which is monitored by MEA engineers. By analyzing the soil and rock mechanics lab data in-house, a better conceptual understanding of the geologic and geo-construction conditions of a site can be obtained. Also, a substantial amount of data can be obtained while on site through in-situ testing and inspection in addition to lab testing to insure that construction requirements are met. The process of monitoring, quality control, and assurance of precise field work requires detailed organization and professional attention. MEA technicians and staff pride themselves on providing the highest attention to the client’s specific project requirements.
