Testing: Materials, Geotech & Water
BSN Santa Fe provides accurate, complete and reliable test results in the shortest possible time to help clients avoid these negative outcomes and finish projects without delays.
When you need construction materials testing, geotechnical analysis, or water testing, the materials used in construction must have the properties required in the building code and project specifications to ensure they behave as intended and fulfill their purpose in the finished project.
The use of improper materials decreases the useful life of a structure, compromises the designed purpose, and undermines the soundness of the structure.
