Quality Assurance / Control

GC&T, Inc. has a comprehensive in-house Quality Assurance and Quality Control(QA/QC) Program. Our instituted and implemented Quality Assurance Manual is available to our clients for their review upon request. This document focuses on quality control measures that apply during project execution ensuring our work is technically appropriate, accurate, and complete. A summary of the in-house Quality Control Program is as follows:

Our field inspectors are certified by the Washington Area Council of Engineering Laboratories (WACEL), American Concrete Institute (ACI), and/or the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) in Soils, Concrete or Asphalt.  The field inspectors work directly under the supervision of registered professional engineers. 

The inspectors, who perform soil compaction testing utilizing a “Nuclear” gauge, must attend an eight (8) hour Nuclear Gauge and Radiation Safety Training seminar. Each inspector, when employed, spends a minimum of 40 hours in training offered in-house to become familiar with the company policies and procedures. 

All our field staff is interconnected to a telecommunications network that keeps them in continuous contact with our project engineers.  At least one engineer is present in the office at all times when inspectors are working in the field to provide assistance and to answer questions if required.  

Our engineering and testing services are supported by an accredited in-house materials laboratory that enables us to efficiently perform the tests necessary to analyze the different construction materials and establish their engineering properties.  Our laboratory facility is inspected by the AASHTO Materials Reference Laboratory (AMRL) and the Cement and Concrete Reference Laboratory (CCRL) of The National Institute of Standards and Technology and WACEL at regular intervals to review our testing and inspections procedures.
