INTERRA Services

 Precast concrete plant inspections

Project Summary

With its certified PCI inspectors, INTERRA has provided precast plant inspection services as per the Manual of Precast Pre-stressed Concrete Products; section 1.3 Quality Assurance specifications. INTERRA has provided these services on numerous Illinois Tollway Authority, Chicago DOT, Illinois DOT, and Navy projects. Specific responsibilities have included observation of strand tensioning and fabrication details, concrete pour, tolerance measurements, observation of compressive strength tests for strand release, and final shipping strength (28 days). Final inspections for crack measurements were performed for every beam and daily inspection forms were completed and submitted to state personnel, as required.  At the time of shipping, each beam was inspected and stamped.

 INTERRA has provided inspection services at the following plants: Mid-States Concrete (South Beloit, IL); PEC (Blackstone, IL); ADL (Michigan and Wisconsin); Welch Brothers (Elgin, IL); ATMI (Aurora, IL); Utility Products (Romeoville, IL); Hoosiers (Salem, IN); Egyptian Concrete (Salem, IL); and Sanders (Indianapolis, IN). Typical structures that were inspected included: Deck Beams (Box Beams), Noise Walls, MSE Wall Panels, Drainage Structures, Retaining Walls, and Architectural Panels.
