• Materials Testing & Inspection Services

    AESCO operates a construction materials engineering (CME) laboratory in Huntington Beach, California, and is capable of performing in-house or on-site testing and inspection services. Our laboratory produces thousands of reports annually involving concrete, aggregates, soils in-place, and bituminous materials. AESCO also regularly tests and inspects brick, granite, stone masonry, mortar, reinforcing steel, and manufactured elements such as pre-stressed beams and pre cast panels..

  • Geotechnical Engineering Capabilities

    Information from geotechnical investigations are used to develop preliminary evaluations. Our experienced field engineers and drillers assess the subsurface conditions as they are encountered to achieve an accurate representation of the soil and bedrock materials beneath a site.

    AESCO can deliver geotechnical services, from routine classifications, to triaxial shear and consolidation tests. Our laboratory testing services include testing of soils, concrete, masonry, fireproofing, asphalt, roofing, and aggregates. Laboratory testing is performed using ASTM, AASHTO, and other applicable specifications and guidelines.

  • Environmental Engineering & Site Assessments

    In many instances, especially with projects involving sediment sampling activities, geotechnical activities can overlap with environmental aspects. AESCO’s combined expertise in environmental, geotechnical and material testing services has made AESCO a leader in providing a package of comprehensive services. To ensure that drilling operations are performed under the highest quality standards, either a registered professional engineer or a geotechnical engineer always supervises the drilling operation. The potential liabilities associated with the presence of hazardous substances on a property can be substantially greater than the value of the property itself. Environmental laws and court decisions have increased the risk of liability for lenders as well as for buyers, sellers and operators of property.
