        What we offer

        Our expertise

        TTL’s Construction Quality Control Testing and Inspection engineers and managers routinely develop quality control programs for transportation and building projects that assure quality.

        Why it’s important

        Construction quality assurance oversight is crucial to ensure a geotechnical feature is successfully completed per the design specifications. TTL provides these services, as well as embankment material selection and compaction, drainage system installation, anchor load tests, and observation of retention system installation.

        Project Highlight

        Client: United States Air Force

        The original runways were 2.6 miles and 1.8 miles long and were completely removed. Full-depth replacements included associated ramps, taxiways, and both concrete and asphalt concrete pavement sections.

        All activities were performed while the other runway remained active. Our services included soil compaction testing, airfield lighting electrical inspection, soil classification testing, soil-cement mix designs, concrete mix designs, and asphalt mix designs.

        All testing and reporting procedures followed the United States Air Force specifications for Airfield Pavements. We also established a government and USACE-validated on-site laboratory testing facility. Concrete mix designs met stringent airfield pavement specifications. Concrete placements consisting of 2,000 cy – 4,000 cy per shift were routinely performed to complete the 250,000 cy of total concrete.
