Inspection & Lab

Construction Material Inspection & Testing

With our staff of competent engineers, experienced inspectors and knowledgeable researchers, and our certified construction material laboratory, AID is a reliable partner for material QC/QA testing and construction inspection. 

Our laboratory is certified by AASHTO, CCRL, and USACE for a wide variety of asphalt, concrete and soil tests. In addition to providing common material testing and construction inspection services, AID subject matter experts and research scientists can interpret the results, and provide useful conclusions and solutions. We are currently delivering projects from Sussex County to Cape May. Thanks to our dedicated staff and our sister company that provides traffic control, we can provide same day service, no matter where you are in New Jersey or Eastern Pennsylvania.
