El Camino College | Humanities Building
Location: Torrance, CA
Client: El Camino College
Construction Cost: $23,000,000
El Camino College is located in Torrance, California. RMA Group has been working on this campus since 2006 under an on-call agreement to provide geotechnical engineering, construction materials testing, and special inspection services in support of their bond program. Projects on this campus have included construction of new facilities as well as upgrades to the backbone infrastructure.

We recently contributed to the new Humanities Building at El Camino College. The project constructed a new three-story structure made of brick, brick veneer, concrete, and glass. This was the first new building on campus in two decades to serve as part of a revitalized entrance to the campus.

Our scope of services on this project consisted of providing materials testing and special inspection.  We performed laboratory testing on samples of reinforced concrete, reinforcing steel, and masonry units including the grout, mortar, and block used in the construction as well as fabricated test prisms of the combined masonry materials.

Special inspection services included inspection of reinforced concrete batch plants and placements, inspection of masonry and masonry veneer construction, and inspection of structural steel fabrication and welding.

Jim Rogers, the Program Manager at the El Camino Community College District stated, “RMA Group has consistently demonstrated its prowess as one of the preeminent special test and inspection firms in Southern California. I am impressed by your company’s ability to achieve its stated goals by providing outstanding customer service to its clients. Testing is conducted correctly, efficiently, and under budget while appropriate documentation and reports are provided in a timely fashion. To date, RMA’s work has been transparent to the Program Manager and El Camino Community College district, and communication is the cornerstone of your success. Additionally, your ability to quickly respond to an ever changing construction schedule has saved the District time, money, and consternation. Thank you in advance for your continued support and cooperation with the District’s capital construction program. We look forward to continuing our relationship with your firm.”
