Historically, FAI reports and measurement findings have been incredibly challenging and time-consuming to navigate. We pride ourselves on communicating inspection data with simplicity. All standard inspection requests receive a “Comprehensive Report” containing straight-forward measurement summaries, statistical report, a ballooned drawing, and access to all the specific information required to maintain compliance with various laboratory standards. This way, you can effortlessly review general information or evaluate detailed data based on your preferences. Not to mention, we are only a phone call or email away if you have any questions.
