  • Geotechnical Solutions for building elements including excavation support systems, underpinning and deep soil improvement such as aggregate piers and jet grouting

  • Pavement Evaluation and Testing including Falling Weight Deflectometer, Dynamic, Cone Penetrometer (DCP) tests and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

  • Geotechnical Instrumentation including inclinometers, piezometers, tilt meters, etc.

  • Geophysical Surveys including seismic refraction, electrical resistivity, etc.

Geotechnical & Materials Laboratory

 

Beyond currently operates four (4) geotechnical and CMT laboratories located in Round Rock, Midland, Carrollton, TX and Carlsbad, NM, professionally equipped for testing soil, rock, concrete, hot mix asphalt along with various aggregate materials in accordance with AASHTO, ASTM, and TxDOT specifications and standards. Beyond utilizes a state-of-the-art, automated testing equipment that can reduce testing turn-around time significantly while maintaining a high level of accuracy. Beyond’s highly experienced laboratory technicians are fully trained and carry ACI/TxDOT certifications. Our Round Rock and Midland labs are accredited by AASHTO

Beyond’s in-house quality assurance program meets or exceeds AASHTO R-18, ASTM C1077, ASTM D3740 and ASTM E329 and ensures a high level of accuracy and reproducibility in our testing services. Our strong customer service orientation drives us to provide accurate and timely testing results that address our clients’ specific schedule and project needs.
