ESP provided field and laboratory construction materials testing services, including subgrade evaluations, undercut monitoring, fill and backfill placement monitoring, concrete testing, and controlled low strength material (CLSM) testing. Our team also provided concrete strength testing of cores from one of the columns. Prior to coring, we located steel reinforcement in the column using ground-penetrating radar (GPR).
