The construction industry is made up of a diverse realm of specialties. We are general contractors, we are masons, carpenters, architects, engineers, project managers, estimators, plumbers, journeymen, foremen, surveyors, electricians, pipe fitters, tin knockers - we are the people that literally build our nation. We are the infrastructure below, the buildings we work and live in, the bridges we travel to and from on - we are part of all other industries in some way shape or form.
Today, we'd like to spotlight one of our company NAWIC members: Flood Testing Laboratories, Inc. (FTL)
FTL is a construction material testing and inspection company based out of Chicago, IL. Their work includes buildings, roadways, laboratory testing, geotechnical investigation, roofing & waterproofing and laboratory testing complying with ASTM E329 and ISO17025. They are also regularly inspected by many organizations including AMRL, CCRL, Illinois DOT and IAS (ICC) to make sure things are always done right.
Let's meet some of their key personnel!
