PRI Engineering recently announced the full certification of its advanced laboratory for materials and performance testing and can now fully serve companies in the Kawartha Lakes area. PRI specializes in providing geotechnical services for construction, civil engineering and solar projects across North America.
The laboratory successfully completed the certification process set by Canadian Council of Independent Laboratories (CCIL) and can now perform in-house testing of concrete, soil and aggregate. The laboratory serves the local demand for certified performance and material testing to support a number of local construction and infrastructure projects.
Local testing of performance and materials will reduce the turnaround time and high costs of sourcing from remote laboratories,” says Arash Yazdani, director of engineering services for PRI Engineering. “As the only laboratory with this certification in the Kawartha Lakes, it will provide more flexible client-care that meets the CCIL standard of labs found in the Greater Toronto Area, Peterborough and Ottawa.”
“Our versatile team of engineers and technicians draw upon a distinct and expansive skill set that’s unique for a geotechnical engineering company,” says Vikki Gledhill, geotechnical engineer and laboratory manager, who successfully led the laboratory certification. “Capable of testing in the field and in the lab, our team draws upon a wide breadth of knowledge and delivers personalized service that meets the high standards of a typical CCIL certified laboratory.”
Now fully certified, PRI is accepting requests to perform soil, concrete and aggregate testing. In addition to best-in-class equipment, PRI employs local engineers and technicians with extensive and well-rounded experience unique to this laboratory.
With over 100 years of combined engineering consulting and construction experience and 100’s of completed geotechnical investigations, PRI Engineering provides full project support, from preliminary studies to detailed design and construction support, specializing in a range of projects in both the public and private sectors.
