Dedicated to Quality

Townes provides residential and commercial services using its own material testing laboratory credited by the United States Army of Engineers. With state-of-the-art equipment, Townes collects and interprets data to assist our clients with their design and construction needs. Our analytical approach lets us apply our findings directly for our client, allowing for personalized and targeted feedback to keep projects structurally sound and prepared for inspections.

Our commitment to quality is assured by the United States Army of Engineers, the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) E-329 Standard Recommended Inspection and Testing Agencies for Concrete Aggregates Mortar and Soils, the Cement and Concrete Reference Laboratory (CCRL) for cement and aggregates and the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Materials Reference Library (AMRL) for soils. The Corps of Engineers also inspects us regularly.
