Field Testing Services


AG&E personnel have provided construction inspection services for PADOT highways and bridges, for airport and runway extensions, and for major industries on construction of major plants.


AG&E owns all necessary equipment for soil/aggregate compaction testing, including nuclear moisture-density gauges and sand cones; dynamic cone penetrometer for foundation subgrade testing; concrete testing equipment; infiltrometer equipment for suburface infiltration testing; and Organic Vapor Analyzer (OVA) for detecting volatiles.


Prior to construction, AG&E also performs site environmental screening and remediation, if required. Environmental field personnel have current OSHA 40-hour HAZWOPER training.


The field testing services are supported by an in-house AASHTO-accredited soils laboratory.
