SOME AVAILABLE TEST AND SERVICES

Port of The Americas Project is a Port of The Americas Authority project at an approximate cost of $210 million. The Port of the Americas construction project was divided into four main phases which will add an additional 3,000 feet (910 m) of quay side to the Port of Ponce, dredge the existing port entrance and nearby bay to a depth of 50 feet (15 m), and develop adjacent lots into new container yards.​ The PIM works concentrated on provide services of Quality Control Independent Laboratory for testing of embankments, surcharges, aggregate courses, asphalt layers, concrete runway pavements and other miscellaneous concrete works.

Portugués River Dam Project is a US ARMY Corps of Engineers project at an approximate cost of $180 million. The Portugués Dam will be a 220 feet (67 m) high and 1,230 feet (370 m) long single-centered roller-compacted concrete thick arch. Containing 367,000 cubic yards (281,000 m3) of roller-compacted concrete, it will be 110 feet (34 m) thick at its base and 35 feet (11 m) thick at its crest. The center of the dam will straddler an intake and outlet structure which will draw water from behind the dam and discharge it into the river valley. The PIM works concentrated on provide services of Quality Assurance Independent Laboratory for testing of embankments, surcharges, Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC), aggregate courses, asphalt layers, concrete pavements and other miscellaneous concrete works.
