Our Unique Foundation and Promising Future
CTLGroup originated a century ago as the cement and concrete
technology Research and Development Laboratories of Portland Cement Association
(PCA) in 1916. How have we changed? In some ways, we haven’t. We are still thought leaders and problem
solvers. We are still engineers,
architects, scientists, and consultants. As the world around us has changed, we have evolved with it to continue
to meet the needs of our clients.
In the 1960s, present-day CTLGroup began providing
consulting services for applied research projects, continuing to expand its
engineering consulting services through the 1980s. In 1987, CTLGroup was incorporated as
Construction Technology Laboratories, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of PCA,
and in 2005 began doing business as CTLGroup.
CTLGroup is an internationally recognized expert consulting
engineering and materials science firm, providing engineering, architecture,
and scientific testing to our clients across the globe. Our engineering expertise is complemented by
one of the largest and most comprehensive private materials and structural
testing laboratories in the world. The
CTLGroup experts can address problems from the materials and structural
perspectives to deliver an integrated solution.
Our accumulated knowledge from our unique beginning has
allowed us to offer new areas of practice and specialization which we have been
able to pass on to our clients in the form of added services, technical
expertise, and expanded practice areas.
