PEI offers a variety of construction-related services that ensure high quality, long-lasting pavement performance. Our QA/QC program verifies all work performed by a contractor conforms to contract document specifications. We perform inspection and testing, including nuclear gauge acceptance testing and Profilograph testing and offer superior materials engineering for suppliers, owners, architects, consulting engineers and public agencies.
Depending on the type and scope of a project, PEI provides contract document services, which free clients from time-consuming administrative services while allowing them to retain financial control and approval during each stage of construction.
Quality control is more than a checklist of procedures or a general warranty that paving work will conform to an engineer’s specifications. It is essential to long-lasting pavement.
Materials engineering is central to quality pavement projects. PEI's in-depth knowledge of paving materials, asphalt mixes, asphalt binders, and how they all perform under the combined effects of environmental oxidation and traffic loads, provides high performance results in pavement design and rehabilitation.
INSPECTION/ MATERIALS TESTING
Construction inspection and materials testing services and support provide clients with full assurance that all details necessary for a successful paving project are taken care of. We have a solid, approach to a managing a successful project and can provide all the services or just a few to supplement existing client resources.
CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION SERVICES
Contract administration services free clients from many time-consuming administrative services related to contracting work. PEI can help clients in many different ways.
Profilograph testing accurately measures surface roughness through a computerized recorder capable of graphing a pavement profile both vertically and horizontally. The information it collects is used to calculate the International Roughness Index (IRI), which is expressed in units of inches/mile or millimeters/meters.
