The quality of materials used in construction is paramount to the success and functionality of the facility or entity being constructed.

CARIRI’s Industrial Materials Unit – Civil - has the experience and capability to test a wide range of construction materials pertaining to concrete works, road construction and buildings.

Operating with core values of integrity, professionalism and quality, we test to ensure that materials used in construction meet a minimum specific requirement consistent with the design and proposed use of any facility.

Our procedures and analyses are careful, thorough and precise, as we understand that substandard materials not only affect quality, but also threaten public safety and can lead to claims on the parties concerned and damages to the reputation of the company and of the construction industry.
