At Scotty’s Contracting & Stone, we maintain an in-house team of quality control specialists to ensure the asphalt and raw materials we supply exceed the industry standards of quality. Our QC team plays an integrated role in our daily operations, adding value to our company’s overall performance at the granular level.
For decades, we’ve built our company’s reputation by providing construction services and products of high quality throughout Kentucky. That reputation is maintained today by the commitment of every Scotty employee and by the efforts of our Quality Control division to stay on the cutting edge of QC processes.
Our QC team is involved in our construction processes, beginning with site testing during the early stages of engineering. We employ the latest soundness and durability testing methods at our aggregate facilities and test high-quality mixes inside our AASHTO-accredited lab. We use advanced methods for field testing to guarantee quality during the application phase.Contact Us
Scotty’s performs a complete range of QC services for roadway transportation paving, aggregate processing, and construction. We use modern technology to guarantee quality, durability, and driveability for the public.
Our Quality Control efforts are differentiated by our team’s expertise, testing and design facilities, and continued training within the industry. We strive to exceed the high standards we set for ourselves and the surfaces we pave.
Scotty’s owns and operates a state-of-the-art design and testing laboratory as part of its Quality Control division. Our lab earned accreditation from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) in 2021 in recognition of our commitment to quality.
Accredited labs undergo third-party assessments to evaluate the ability to perform quality control tests with high levels of accuracy and precision. As an accredited lab, Scotty’s is qualified to design and produce mixes for airports and other tightly regulated projects.
Innovation doesn’t only apply to construction and paving processes, it’s also key to improving quality control practices. At Scotty’s, innovation is in our blood, and we apply our passion for developing newer and better methods of doing things to our quality control team.
Whether we’re testing hot-mix designs created by our asphalt plant teams, testing the aggregate materials we mine for durability and soundness, or testing dirt samples on our civil construction sites, our Quality Control teams are constantly examining their methods and processes to discover new opportunities for improvement.
We sincerely believe in the importance of quality control on public infrastructure projects, whether the work is being performed by Scotty’s or anyone else. By extension, we believe we have a responsibility to be transparent in our methods, and to educate within our industry to increase quality control on all projects.
To help spread knowledge and inform our industry partners of our QC practices, we regularly invite members of the public, transportation agencies, and even high school and college students to visit our QC facilities and learn more about what we do. It’s a valuable step in raising the bar on quality in the construction industry.
Scotty’s routinely hosts Quality Control education events onsite at its facilities. These events include invitees from KYTC and other governing agencies, as well as high school and university groups. Our company uses them to advance understanding of QC regulations and foster an active community of experts to share ideas and promote the industry overall.
Our team conducts advanced materials classes for industry partners, as well as facility tours to general audiences. As an industry leader, we believe it is beneficial to improving communication and inspiring the next generation of Quality Control professionals here in Kentucky.
