Concrete testing labs are engaged to evaluate all concrete and masonry components used in building construction. To ensure that masonry components meet their structural design requirements, concrete testing is needed during the construction process. It is mandatory that any concrete testing must be performed by a licensed concrete testing lab.
The process of concrete testing includes evaluating the building materials composition, its strength as well as its varied components so that it meets or exceeds the strict guidelines of the building code. All concrete testing labs must be licensed by the New York City Department of Buildings to ensure that they are properly qualified to evaluate the masonry materials of construction projects.
