Construction Materials Testing

Private and public sector clients trust Raba Kistner Consultants, Inc. for quality, reliable, timely Construction Materials Engineering and Testing (CoMET) Services. Our team of trained, experienced professional engineers and field technicians – with almost 1,000 years in combined project experience – have partnered with clients for more than 45 years to meet construction deadlines and to help avoid project performance problems.

Raba Kistner Consultants values our “trusted advisor” status with our clients – many who have trusted us with their projects since we opened our doors in 1968 – and we will continue to make a commitment to invest in the technology, staff and research that will keep Raba Kistner at the forefront of the construction materials testing and engineering field.

Your next project can only be as good as the materials that will serve as the foundation of the project. Accurate sampling and accurate testing in a quality materials testing lab are two of the keys to making sure your construction materials meet what the project engineers specify. Samples taken by Raba Kistner technicians are collected following standard procedures by in-house, seasoned professionals and technicians.

Raba Kistner starts with a Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) program designed specifically for each project. This QA/QC program focuses on the quality and suitability of materials used in construction as well as the quality of workmanship. This attention to detail is reviewed by field representatives who earn certification from The American Concrete Institute (ACI), the National Institute for Certification of Engineering Technologies (NICET), the Texas Asphalt Paving Association (TXAPA), and others.
