Construction Materials Testing

Weaver Consultants Group offers construction materials testing (CMT) and inspection services including state-certified laboratories located in Griffith and South Bend, Indiana. What sets us apart is our effort to understand our clients' needs, and our intent to provide a sensible scope of testing.

We provide CMT services with the same focus as our other engineering services - attentive and responsive customer service coupled with qualified and experienced engineering. We employ experienced field technicians that understand our clients' needs. Our role is to help contractors do their jobs right the first time - not just to point out problems after the fact. Our approach offers greater value to our clients and often saves time, money, and headaches.
