Construction Services for Each Project Phase


Preventing structural defects and failures with our expert building materials inspection is a primary value AET's Construction Services team brings to your construction project. You gain a partner in pre-planning, building material and verification testing, special inspections and quality assurance/quality control for all phases of your project. Utilizing our geotechnical engineering capabilities and independent laboratories, our Construction Services professionals consult across departments to test, report, guide and troubleshoot on each client project — from the subsurface geology to the foundations and selected construction materials.

Our team joins your team, taking into consideration your budget, timeline and constructability — because our engineers have also worked in the field. We've seen thousands of projects and bring that experience to you with practical applications and thorough reporting. For example, we can help spot trouble before it starts on a post-tension deck pour or help you with difficult soil bearing conditions. Ultimately, we help you reduce risk while saving time and money.
