As an earthwork quality control lab CTI-Construction Testing & Inspection, Inc. specializes in evaluating the properties and characteristics of soil and other earth materials used in construction and civil engineering projects. This is achieved through various tests on soil samples to evaluate properties such as density, moisture content, grain size distribution, compaction, and shear strength. These tests help determine the suitability of soil for specific construction applications, such as embankments, foundations, and road subgrades.

Our accredited lab performs compaction tests to evaluate the effectiveness of compaction efforts during earthwork construction. This involves measuring the density and moisture content of compacted soil samples to ensure they meet specified compaction requirements and achieve adequate stability and load-bearing capacity. We conduct Proctor tests to determine the optimal moisture content and compaction effort needed to achieve maximum soil density. This helps engineers and contractors establish appropriate compaction specifications for earthwork projects.

In addition to laboratory testing, we provide field monitoring and field inspection services to ensure that earthwork construction activities are performed in accordance with project specifications and industry standards. This may involve on-site testing of soil compaction, moisture content, and other parameters during construction operations. By conducting thorough testing and analysis, we help ensure the stability, performance, and longevity of earthwork structures and infrastructure.

Did you Know ?

The term 'earthworks' refers to the removal or placement of soils and other excavated material during construction. It's commonly part of civil engineering work required in the construction of roads, land stabilisation, and land grading to change the topography of a site.
