Lab Technician
Introduction
The Lab Technician is in charge of the testing and examination of street development materials, including yet not restricted to Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) and Granular Base Course (GBC). The motivation behind examining and testing of street development materials is to figure out if or not their attributes, properties and quality meet or surpass the measures and particulars recommended by clients.
