L.E. Gregg Associates was founded in 1957 in Lexington, Kentucky, to provide engineering and materials testing. Early projects mostly involved highway design, construction, and testing, but over time, the firm became more well known for its geotechnical investigations and testing services for other types of projects, such as industrial and public service facilities.
Today, the firm still provides these same services, and the testing laboratory offers a broad array of testing services for soil, rock, concrete, masonry, aggregates, etc. Gregg Laboratories subscribes to an annual sample proficiency program conducted by the following agencies:
CCRL--Cement and Concrete Reference Laboratory (National Institute of Standards)
AMRL--AASHTO Materials Reference Laboratory (National Institute of Standards)
In addition to the above agencies, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
also inspects the lab and its personnel. Most of the firm's technicians have been long-term employees and most hold American Concrete Institute Level I and II certifications, as well as certifications for aggregate testing, in-place density testing, etc.
