Imperial is a Construction Materials Engineering Council, Inc. (CMEC) certified laboratory for materials testing.

Our materials testing division assures that the contractor or construction company completes the project in accordance with the specifications using the materials specified in the plans.

From compaction of the subsurface soils to inspecting the welds on the roof of the structure, the end result of any project is an accumulation of the materials and the manner in which they were placed.

Imperial can provide confidence that the project is done in accord with the specifications and completed correctly the first time. The specifications that we oversee may be governed by one or several agencies including ACI, ASTM, FDOT, AASHTO, Corp of Engineers and various Water Management Districts.
