Concrete QC and Plant Inspections
Typical project specifications now read, “The production facility supplying hydraulic cement concrete shall have a current Certification of Ready-Mixed Concrete Production Facilities from the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association, or equivalent.”
Plant certification is recognized as an important part of comprehensive project specifications, ensuring that production facilities are in good operational order and individual materials are measured within the prescribed tolerances.
Our inspector and assistants have been through the qualification process and have been approved by NRMCA to conduct your inspections in Texas and Oklahoma.
Plant certifications are valid for two years from the date of inspection and certification of delivery vehicles is valid for twelve months from the date of inspection.
Inspections include: Material Storage and Handling, Batching Equipment, Dispensers for Liquid Admixtures, Accuracy of Plant Batching, and Delivery Fleet Inspections.
