I have been working as an inspector since 1977. I have all of my certifications are current, including my ACI Concrete Field Testing - Grade 1. Presently I am working as a QA Inspector for the contractor, on the Dulles Metrorail Project in Virginia. Per my companies contract, I must test 10% of the concrete placed. My company does not have a lab, so I have contracted an accredited lab to pick-up and test the cylinders I cast. The QA Manager for the owner says that since I do not work for the lab testing my cylinders, I cannot cast them. He says that only a technician from the lab testing the cylinders can cast them. ......I don't agree. I believe that if I am ACI Certified, which I am, I can cast the cylinders.
If someone out there has proof to prove either view....I would really appreciate it. Much appreciated for your time.
