Constantly Working to Improve our Quality
Designers and builders are demanding consistency in the quality of materials they use to construct buildings, retaining walls, paving stone projects, and other systems that use concrete masonry. Consistent manufacturing is enhanced with comprehensive quality assurance testing that includes third-party compliance of the product.
Quality Assurance Laboratory
Newtonbrook is one of the only concrete block and paver producers in Ontario to have established its own Quality Assurance Laboratory (QA). Our QA Manager is certified with the McMaster University Center for Effective Design of Structures, as well as with the World Center for Concrete Technology (Alpena, Michigan).
Quality control and compliance with specifications for masonry units, paving stones, and retaining wall units relies on materials testing. The quality of the concrete used to manufacture our masonry units and pavers is routinely tested - from aggregates, to the finished products. All testing is in compliance with the ASTM and CSA standards and protocols, leading to a product that surpasses CCMPA criteria ( www.ccmpa.ca ). Download our QA-Protocol (PDF).
