City-wide Testing and Consulting Group was founded in 1993 by Brian J. Burke. City-Wide Testing was created with the intention to provide real quality service, with real people who understand the ultimate goal of any project - success.

We understand there are many options nowadays but aside from ensuring to have Certified/Licensed Engineer &  Inspectors on site, it is also very important to us that we have Personnel who are relatable and understanding of a project without compromising integrity. We believe this is what makes City-Wide Testing a unique company and a wise choice for your project.
