Envirogeotech Consulting Inc. Material Testing, Inspection and Engineering Services

Materials testing and engineering inspection is required for many aspects of construction in order to maintain the quality control and quality assurance of the materials used.  EGC support our clients by providing testing to ensure materials meet quality control standards, comply with regulations, and exhibit the physical characteristics required for construction including  testing of concrete, asphalt, soil, and aggregates.

EGC is an accredited laboratory by the Canadian Council of Independent Laboratories (CCIL) and Alberta Transportation. Our laboratory is well equipped to conduct construction materials testing on soil, aggregates, asphalt, and concrete. Our Lab follow standard methods as by the Ministry of Transporation (AB, SK, BC) , ASTM, USCS, AASHTO, CSA, CCIL and ACI. EGC Participates Concrete Alberta and CCIL Correlation program for Concrete.
