Fabrication Inspection

Expert QA/QC services for construction materials

Ensuring the safety, durability and compliance of structural building materials.


Large construction and renovation projects require quality materials from the point of fabrication to project site installation. Steel and concrete construction materials must maintain the highest level of integrity to ensure the safety of major buildings and infrastructure. Project success requires that these vital building materials work seamlessly for specified applications and satisfy precise inspection requirements set forth by regulations to meet applicable codes and standards of compliance.

TRC’s source inspection team works globally, bringing industry-leading technical expertise, long-standing supplier relationships and decades of experience in international logistics to exceed your local and global material sourcing requirements and expectations.

Our team includes materials engineers, shop inspectors and non-destructive testing (NDT) technicians with expertise in concrete and steel inspections. Our inspection processes follow a detailed fabrication inspection checklist, including visual observations, process monitoring, and dimensional accuracy. We also perform non-destructive evaluations like magnetic particles, liquid penetrants and ultrasonic testing.

Years of QA/QC experience

We ensure structural building projects are safe, durable and compliant with design standards and specifications. Our staff is highly credentialed, including American Welding Society Certified Welding Inspector (AWS CWI) and NDT qualifications from the American Society for Non-destructive Testing (ASNT).
