Construction Materials Testing

Building material testing is an essential part of construction. While the quality of your materials plays a role in compliance, it also affects how your final product aligns with your design specs. Working with ECS as your third-party testing team can help you confirm material quality before you dive into your project. Get in touch with us today to find out how we can help!

What Is Building Material Testing?

Construction Materials Testing (CMT) primarily involves testing structural materials used to build new projects from the ground up, materials and components used to construct new additions or new components being added to an existing facility. These include earthwork, shallow and deep foundations, destructive and non-destructive concrete testing, wood construction observations, structural masonry, structural steel, sprayed-on fireproofing, Exterior Insulation and Finish Systems (EIFS), roofing evaluation and testing and asphalt pavement evaluation and testing.
