OVER 60 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
Alaska Testlab celebrates over 65 years of construction experience across the state of Alaska. Formed as a testing lab in 1956. Alaska Testlab was purchased in 1974 by Dickinson and Oswald, the owners and operators of DOWL, a multidisciplinary engineering firm. Alaska Testlab operated as a separate division of DOWL until 2008 when the two companies merged. In 2018, DOWL and Alaska Testlab amicably separated and Alaska Testlab was relaunched as a small, Veteran and woman-owned business.
Over the years, the mission has remained unchanged: provide quality construction materials testing and inspection services in support of commercial construction projects working for owners, contractors, developers, federal, state, and municipal government clients.
