We Take the Tests, You Get the Credit
We know that our inspectors aren’t exactly the most popular people on a project site. Sometimes we have to tell you things you don’t want to hear. But F&R’s testing and inspection program helps to ensure that your projects meet the requirements put in place by the numerous private, state, local, and federal entities that oversee the nation’s construction industry. In short, your projects have to stand the test of time, safely. And that’s why you need us.
F&R’s full-service materials laboratories are accredited by AASHTO (AMRL/CCRL), US Army Corps of Engineers and the various state departments of transportation. These laboratories ensure that your project timelines and budgets will not be disrupted by subcontract mobilization or laboratory delays.
Our combination of individual skills and companywide technological capability allows F&R to seamlessly integrate our personnel with the other members of your construction team. Our ability to quickly and accurately test the quality of your concrete, soil, asphalt, steel, masonry, and other materials will allow you to proceed with confidence.
It’s OK with us if you wish you didn’t need us – we can live with that. But since you do, in fact, require accurate and thorough construction testing in order to protect people and property, why not bring to bear the century of experience that F&R can offer your projects?

- Concrete and asphalt mix designs

F&R’s GPR units are completely portable and require only one technician for operation, causing minimal disruption to ongoing activities. Furthermore, imaging results are displayed in real time – giving you the data you need to make decisions instantly and allowing us the opportunity to quickly scan large areas per day, and thus saving you time and money…Don’t let potential problems fly under the radar!
