In the wake of widespread allegations of fraud against some of the city’s largest concrete testing companies, New York City officials say they’re ramping up their oversight on concrete testing. Officials told the New York Times that the Department of Buildings will create a new concrete audit unit in its ranks and will install an on-site concrete testing laboratory. The hope is that the new measures will ease the process of retesting concrete in approximately 80 city buildings. An official announcement from the city is expected today.
