EVALUATION, REMEDIATION AND RECONSTRUCTION
You may know the name of Metro Testing Laboratories Ltd. in association with
testing of concrete, soil, asphalt or perhaps geotechnical and materials
engineering, however in 2006 Metro Testing Laboratories Ltd. ventured into
speciality construction work under the banner of:
Metro Engineering & Concrete Restoration Services (METRO).
Our clients have found good value in giving their concrete restoration projects to
METRO. They know that we provide innovative, cost effective repairs carried out to
the highest industry standards.
Our team has over 75 years of experience in the construction industry and have
developed a reputation for creative innovation in solving their customer’s problems.
Metro’s crew of skilled concrete repair technicians can be called upon to successfully complete
the most challenging concrete restoration tasks, even in environmentally sensitive areas.
In many cases our clients have required their structures remain in service during the repair process,
and we have been able to accommodate this.
We have a good inventory of well maintained equipment for all of
The work that we undertake. This allows our crews to mobilize in a
very timely manner to serve customers with more urgent repair
You may be wondering how ‘Engineering and Restoration’ can
work together within the same company?
Normally, an engineering company is called upon to assess
deterioration, prepare a report and project specifications, and
review the repair. METRO approach is to have our engineers carry
out an assessment of damage or deterioration, and advise
the construction team of the requirements for repair. Then
METRO construction team discusses the optimal approach to
achieve the desired results, prepares a budget or quotation, and
a repair is put into motion.
During the course of the repair, periodic field reviews are carried
Out by Metro’s engineers who sign off at completion. Thereby
saving money by getting cost effective, engineered repairs
without redundancy or delays.
