The Importance of a Lab Technician’s Role for Infrastructure Projects


A lab technician serves as a very important part of our services here at G3 Quality. From testing various materials used on the job to ensuring accurate data entry and mathematics for projects, we could not do our job to the best of our ability without our trust lab technicians! 

What Does a Lab Technician Do? 

Lab technicians are the behind the scenes workers in charge of ensuring materials are up to code for the project at hand. They are responsible for testing and analyzing materials such as aggregate, soils, asphalt binders, concrete, and Hot Mix Asphalt. Lab technicians also ensure the correct materials are implemented for each job. 

Lab technicians must adhere to strict safety procedures and standards. These techs provide the framework for how the labs should be run and the proper protocols for carrying out a high quality job. 

Without an experienced lab technician, many of these projects would not be able to continue on in a timely and successful manner.
