Some History

Having established itself as a field executive in construction materials, Metzger Testing & Inspection continues to provide experienced consulting for developers, owners and contractors

In 1983 I began soil and concrete testing which has continued to the present time. In the field of geotechnical engineering, I have 30 years’ experience as a field and lab tester. The word, geotechnical ‘geo’ means earth or soil.
