Construction, Inspection and Testing Services

In order to familiarize the entire team with project requirements and to identify any potential construction difficulties, plans and specifications are thoroughly reviewed by our laboratory and inspection staff. Daily field reports are completed by technicians and inspectors and then are submitted to the project manager for review and certification. The project manager reviews these reports for thoroughness and accuracy to ensure their usefulness as a record of construction activities. Our geotechnical/geological engineering staff is available at all times to support construction operations by providing quick, accurate, and cost-effective solutions to construction issues.

Black Eagle Consulting, Inc. personnel are familiar with local contractors, various materials plants, and supplied materials. We also possess extensive knowledge of general construction methods practiced in Nevada and California and all local construction specifications. All materials sampling is performed by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and/or the Nevada Alliance for Quality Transportation Construction (NAQTC) certified personnel who are well versed in proper sampling technique. Sampling is done in strict accordance with applicable American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO), Standard Specifications for Public Works Construction (Orange Book), and Caltrans standards.
