Trimat has managed Construction Materials Testing for builders and developers, providing engineering services through our extensive experience dealing with complex materials, delivering solid solutions that meet or exceed standards assigned to building and developing neighborhoods and commercial structures. Applying environmentally sound practices and state of the art technology has been the cornerstone of our approach.
Site Development Plan
Trimat can assist you with your development proposal to ensure it has been planned consistently with the regulations and intent of the Zoning Code. We can qualify if it addresses elements such as use, building location and size, site circulation, parking and access, landscaping, building materials, and public improvements.
Trimat can perform Soil Compaction Testing (otherwise known as density tests) by using the Proctor method, in addition to Atterberg Limits in order to determine the soil compaction level. This compaction is a comparison to the field density method by using the nuclear or sand cone method.
Verifying concrete composition and strength is achieved by visual, mechanical, nondestructive, and/or destructive methods. Trimat’s concrete experts perform tests in general accordance with the American Concrete Institute (ACI), American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), and American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) test procedures. Services are provided at the construction site and at our in-house laboratory. Trimat’s services provide a critical link for producing quality concrete.
Masonry Special Inspections (SI)
Trimat’s professionals have the training and knowledge to look at masonry walls as they are constructed to assure that they are being built according to plan. For instance, inspectors are trained to look for unobstructed grout spaces, how to check the placement of reinforcement, and how to test mortar and grout. They watch over construction as it proceeds to see that contractors are doing things right.
Structural Steel SI and ICC
TRIMAT is an industry leader in performing special inspections on construction-related projects. Our special inspectors maintain ICC certification in areas such as concrete reinforcement, masonry, structural steel, welding, bolting, and fireproofing.
