We are very excited and proud to share of our #334 spot on the national ENR Top 500 Design Firms! We have come a long way since our incorporation in 1983 – adding 3 additional offices in Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Houston and growing to a 300+ person firm. But we couldn’t have gotten to #334 alone. Our outstanding Alpha team, leadership, and clients have made this growth possible and we look forward to the many years ahead!

Congratulations to our five recipients of the 2015 Founder’s Award! Every year, we recognize our employees from each office who routinely demonstrate a commitment to embracing and solving any challenge before them. Presented at our Alpha Christmas parties, this award was created to recognize those who give exceptional service to both clients and our Alpha family.
This year’s recipients are Harsha Addula, PE and Junior Hernandez from our Dallas office, Bodie Yarbrough from our Fort Worth office, John Joseph from our Houston office, and Judy Villarreal from our San Antonio office. Congratulations with a heartfelt thank you for being examples to all of us at Alpha!
Alpha’s Junior Hernandez starred in one of the videos presented at the 2015 World of Concrete conference in Las Vegas, where thousands of concrete enthusiasts come together to discuss, well concrete! Although concrete is one of many materials our testing labs inspects, it is a vital material used in almost every construction project. Alpha’s Construction Materials Testing (CMT) department ensures the integrity of concrete that will be used anywhere from roads to walls. In the video, Junior laid out the bones of Alpha’s intricate CMT services in under one minute – a difficult task for even our 25 year Alpha veteran!
It is with gratitude and excitement that we announce our #334 spot on the national ENR Top 500 Design Firms. Gratitude for our outstanding teamwork here at Alpha, which made the growth possible, and excitement for our 50th place jump from last year! Keep an eye out around each office for a plaque in honor of this achievement. Thank you to everyone who made this ranking possible!

New York – No, we are not opening up in New York, but Technical Supervisor Refugio (Junior) Hernandez took some time away from the Dallas Office and headed North with his family.On July 31, they headed to Times Square to see Good Morning America in action. While the cameras rolled, Junior decided to represent a little piece of home. There is no mistaking that Alpha Testing, Inc. logo in the crowd. Many of the spectators bring steps stools to be visible, Junior brought a sign – thank goodness he has long arms!
