Welcome to H. H. Holmes Testing Laboratories, Inc.

Welcome to the wide range of materials testing and engineering expertise at H.H. Holmes Testing Laboratories. Since 1936 we have helped our customers in a variety of disciplines from construction to packaging to better execute successful projects. We offer a variety of geotechnical drilling services to ensure the success of your building project. Our laboratory services span the full range of materials testing and research in soils, concrete, aggregate, asphalt, masonry and steel as well as paper, corrugated, wood, metals and plastics testing for retail, commercial, industrial and medical applications.

Inspection. Evaluation. Research. Holmes Testing works shoulder to shoulder with professionals from the retail, industrial, commercial, medical, residential, land development and construction markets. We adhere to the stringent standards set by the industries we serve, governmental regulations and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). We are annually and periodically inspected by ACI, DOT, ISTHA, FAA, Army Corps of Engineers, NIST/CCRL, A2LA and AASHTO and we welcome your inspection as well.

Instantaneous Communication. Fastest Reporting. Because half of our construction testing takes place on your construction site, we have armed our field technicians with Field2Base Tablet PCs. Your site conditions are documented and posted to our website, ready for you to access within 48 hours of our inspection.

Innovative Solutions. In order to serve even remote construction sites, Holmes Testing has developed a line of custom-built portable labs that will perfectly meet your needs. Field/lab technicians can be hired and trained in your jobsite locale. Our Lab-In-A-Box technology has allowed us to place custom-built agency-inspected portable labs on construction sites around the world.

Please peruse the descriptions of our services contained here in our website and feel free to call or email us. We would welcome the opportunity to help you with your next project. For more information or a proposal, click on "Contact Us."
