GEC believes the use of third-party consultants providing professional quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) testing greatly enhances the overall quality of a project. We work closely with owners, developers, architects, engineers or the project contractor to provide these services.

GEC has a staff of more than 30 engineers, geologists, technicians, and other personnel experienced in construction quality control testing. All of our technicians are required to be certified by the American Concrete Institute and go through a rigorous in-house training program. Each technician must attend an OSHA-required Nuclear Radiation Safety program prior to the performance of nuclear density testing. We use a Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) to provide structural steel testing services.

Our staff has the only laboratory in middle Georgia certified compliant with ASTM E329. The lab has several other accreditations and certifications, all of which ensure that you get quality testing results.

Typical services on a project include field-testing services such as:

  • Proofrolling of the soil subgrade prior to fill placement
  • Soil density testing and fill monitoring during earthwork operations
  • Borrow source evaluation
  • Pile or caisson installation monitoring
  • Shallow foundation bearing pressure evaluation
