Fabrication shop inspections are a hot topic for local agencies. SME takes calls and questions every day from representatives of cities, villages, road commissions, fabrication shops, contractors, and consulting engineers.
SME has been providing fabrication shop and field inspection services for state and local agencies since 2012 and understands contract requirements and expectations. Our team possesses extensive knowledge of the quality and documentation requirements. We have provided fabrication shop, laboratory, and field inspections for hundreds of bridge elements, in addition to specialty nondestructive testing services and technical consulting.
