Our Lafayette lab opened in 2014, which started with a single employee and grew as our first projects with two local municipalities and an airport took off, as well as hiring support staff, including a Quality Assurance Inspector and Laboratory Coordinator. Since then we have continued to grow our client base and offer quality services in addition to an AASHTO accredited and USACE validated laboratory. Our second office in Sulphur, which serves the southwest Louisiana area, opened in August 2016. The Sulphur office is fully staffed to handle any project needs and also has a local materials laboratory.
Our team members have experience in many service areas, including: geotechnical engineering, environmental consulting (Phase I, II, III), cone penetration testing, nondestructive examination, construction materials testing and inspection services as well as building sciences. We have significant experience across several market sectors, with a focus on Oil and Gas / Petrochemical, Institutional, Commercial / Retail, Agriculture/Mining, and Municipal.
Some of our projects include: a new Costco retail store in Lafayette, numerous municipal roads and bridges, Runway 11-29 Phase II EMAS project at the Lafayette Regional Airport, and Dolet Hills OxBow mine expansion projects, which consists of haul roads, bridges, ponds, slurry walls, etc. Our team has also supported local municipalities in the wake of recent flooding, head to our blog for an informative article on best practices to prepare for flooding.
