Beyond provided consulting services to identify failing Hamburg issue, including evaluation of mining operation, coarse and fine aggregate quality analysis, review of liquid binder reports and design review. Concluding that initial mix design as root cause of failing Hamburg tests, Beyond provided plant and JMF adjustment recommendations helping the General Contractor avoid project delay and cost overrun.

“Delhur approached Beyond with a Superpave Hamburg issue, within 1-week Beyond had boots on the ground at Delhur’s asphalt plant and crusher to troubleshoot the issue from the ground-up. Beyond offered a quick and cost-effective solution that enabled Delhur to resume production immediately.”
