to Quality Drives All that Schmidt Does
Schmidt Construction houses a state-of-the-art asphalt
and aggregate laboratory to ensure the highest attainable product quality.
Recently Schmidt Construction was judged by the Colorado Department of
Transportation (CDOT) to be one of the top three asphalt producers for
asphalt pavement quality in the State of Colorado.
The Schmidt Construction laboratory is an American Association for State
Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Materials Reference Laboratory
(AMRL) certified. Its Employees are trained and certified to all applicable
Colorado Asphalt Paving Association (CAPA) and National Institute for
Certification in Engineering Technology (NICET) standards. In 2003, the
Schmidt testing laboratory finished in the top 10% of all Colorado labs
for testing accuracy and consistency.
Schmidt Construction also owns and operates the first and only contractor-owned
high-speed laser profilometer to be utilized in Colorado. This is a computerized
system that tests for pavement surface smoothness by recognizing and identifying
minor flaws in the asphalt mat, thereby enhancing the finished quality
of paving projects.
