Founded in 1959, the Teichert Quality Assurance Department provides professional construction materials and construction quality control/quality assurance services. The core asset of the Quality Assurance Department is our Central Laboratory, outfitted with state of the art technology and staffed by highly trained and qualified quality assurance professionals. Our Central Laboratory is accredited by AASHTO, CCRL and approved by Caltrans, the FAA, and the Army Corps of Engineers to prepare Portland Cement Concrete mix designs and to conduct Portland Cement Concrete testing and aggregate testing. The laboratory is also accredited and approved to prepare Hot Mix Asphalt mix designs, and conduct Hot Mix Asphalt, Aggregate, and Soils testing. In addition to the Central Laboratory, Teichert owns and operates a network of permanent plant, portable plant, and mobile field laboratories certified by Caltrans to conduct Portland Cement Concrete, Hot Mix Asphalt, and Aggregate testing.
Many of our Quality Assurance Department staff members have leadership roles in industry and serve on joint industry-agency technical committees. Staff members possess certifications by ACI, NICET, NAQTC and Caltrans to conduct Portland Cement Concrete, Hot Mix Asphalt, Aggregate, and Soil laboratory and field testing. A number of them serve as trainers and examiners in the ACI Concrete Field Technician certification program as well. Staff members’ participation in local, state, and national Industry associations, national and international code, standards and specification development organizations, and local and state joint industry-agency committees provide us with the ability to utilize the most current quality assurance testing equipment, methods and procedures.
