About Us

Established in 1970 by Joe Whitaker, Whitaker Laboratory’s early days focused primarily on testing asphalt on state highways and city streets as Savannah expanded to the suburbs.

Over forty years later, our services have expanded to every phase of construction method and their respective quality control testing in South Georgia and the South Carolina lowcountry. 

To ensure efficiency and accuracy of our testing services, we maintain:

  • 3 professional engineers on staff
  • Over 10 professional consultants with construction, geological and environmental certification and experience. 
  • Accredited laboratory technicians with annual licensing and continuing education.
I would like to take a moment to thank the Whitaker staff for your performance on the Meadows Regional Replacement Hospital project. It is always a pleasure working with responsive team members that hold professionalism in high regard. Whitaker's field personnel were very knowledgeable and proficient in performing the required special inspections and materials testing services on this project. We look forward to working with you on future projects.
