Engineering Testing

At Geotex Engineering, we offer comprehensive construction materials testing services to ensure the quality and integrity of your construction projects. Our team of experienced professionals utilizes state-of-the-art equipment and industry best practices to deliver accurate and reliable results. Whether you are constructing a building, road, bridge, or any other infrastructure project, our services will help you meet regulatory requirements and ensure the safety and durability of your structures. From small additions to new high school campuses, commercial/industrial complexes, roadways, and airports, our Materials Testing Division has the experienced personnel to provide Quality Control (QC) and Quality Assurance (QA) testing and inspection services for your project.

Our staff includes a full complement of professional engineers, geologists, laboratory managers and ACI, ICC, TxDOT and NICET-certified technicians who provide a broad suite of construction tests and inspections, material testing, project documentation, and comprehensive audit support, all performed to meet rigorous industry requirements. Our certified independent laboratories (accredited by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials – AASHTO) are designed to test in-house or we offer onsite testing. Testing includes ASTM and other relevant standards. We use the latest technology and methods to investigate subsurface conditions to identify and assess any risks posed by site conditions to the project.

Our approach to performing construction materials testing and inspection services is thorough, reliable, and unique to your project’s needs. We maintain consistent communication throughout the project life-cycle so you are aware of progress as its made in real-time.

Our Services

Our soil testing services provide crucial information about the geotechnical properties of your construction site. We offer various tests, such as:
