Success and longevity of the project is based on adherence to the plans and specifications and construction documents. Quality control and/or quality assurance is an essential part of a project. QA/QC consists of construction observation and material testing (COMT) performed by an independent and reputable entity like K+A.
COMT at K+A is performed by certified and experienced engineering technicians. Engineering technicians are trained in-house in soils, concrete, asphalt, rebar, steel and masonry. Typical certifications include NICET, ACI, PTI, AWS, ICC, LabCAT, and WAQTC.
We provide these services on a full time and/or part time basis and adhere to the requirements outlined in the project documents. Our commitment to quality has resulted in K+A being selected for numerous large and small projects and repeat business from private and public sector clients.
K+A has a custom developed password protected website reporting system for COMT test results. This secure system enables the expedient delivery of our reports. A unique username/password is assigned to each client at the start of a project; our clients can quickly access the project reports at their convenience throughout the completion of the project and thereafter.
K+A has been managing the Denver International Airport (DEN) Laboratory for all construction and testing at DEN. K+A has been providing Owner’s Verification Testing (OVT) to the Regional Transportation District (RTD) for the ongoing FasTracks project.
