ATL EMPLOYEES ATTEND SPECIAL INSPECTION TRAINING

Atlantic Testing Laboratories strives for quality in our services and in doing so we are committed to sending qualified individuals to our Clients projects. As part of the State of New York Building Code, Chapter 17 “Structural Tests and Inspections”, some projects require additional inspection beyond the standard materials testing services. This is outlined in the “Statement of Special Inspections” for the project.  

As part of our continuing development of employees we conduct an additional structured two day internal training program for Special Inspectors. This training, developed by our project and operations managers, in conjunction with our quality department, will provide employees with hands on, real world scenarios on what they will see in the field.  Training is a continuous practice at ATL, as we adapt to stay up to date with the requirements of the latest codes and construction documents. This training will also provide our field staff with a better understanding of the reference material and construction documents used to provide this inspection service.  

For more information or to receive a quote for our services please contact your local ATL office or email us at info@atlantictesting.com.

ATL Gives Back to Local Communities

Each year, the ATL family gives back to local communities where we work and live during the holiday season. Our compassionate employees are spreading some holiday cheer by supporting these local organizations.  

The Canton office had luncheons once a week to raise money. They are donating the proceeds to the Potsdam Holiday Fund (providing new toys, clothing, boots and food to families and senior citizens in need in St. Lawrence County) and to the Renewal House (Victims of Family Violence).

The Albany office donated and hand-delivered toys to the Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center. They also made a monetary donation. These gifts will help to lift the spirits of children who will be in the hospital during the holidays.

The Syracuse office teamed up with the Syracuse Nationals Youth Hockey Team and the Salvation Army to help supply non-perishable food items to benefit the less fortunate.

The Utica office adopted two families for the holiday season.  These are families that have been through domestic violence, seeking homes, and getting their lives back on track. They purchased all of the gifts that the families requested as well as provided each family with a gift card.

ATL believes that helping those in need is the greatest gift to give during the holiday season.  

From the ATL family to yours, we wish you a joyous holiday season.
