Research and Development and Product Evaluation

Tourney Consulting Group, LLC (TCG) has considerable expertise and experience in the concrete and durability fields. TCG assisted several companies in developing new products. In several cases TCG has improved upon the initial concept resulting in new patent protection that was assigned to the client.

As part of the development process TCG often identifies additional applications for the technology and provides assistance in bringing the technology to the market.

TCG evaluates numerous commercial and emerging products for performance. Standard test methods are employed to determine if existing specifications are met. Additionally, TCG conducts specialized tests to more clearly show performance enhancements and develops tests and standards as needed to characterize the key features of the technologies.

TCG’s customer base includes several major suppliers of products as well as new companies that are developing new products. Whether large or small, TCG provides guidance and testing to help bring these new technologies to commercialization.

TCG has performed several large research projects for various federal and state agencies. In several cases we have worked with universities and other partners on these projects, providing a small business partner and in many cases helping in the training of graduate students.
