Rich Laughlin is the current President of Midwest Testing, a full-service geotechnical, environmental, and materials engineering consulting firm that provides a wide variety of services, including field exploration, laboratory testing, engineering analysis, and construction observation.

Headquartered in my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, Midwest Testing was founded in 1985. Ever since, it has provided creative solutions for its clients while also offering the best and most accurate testing services possible. Midwest Testing’s state-of-the-art lab maintains the highest standard of testing for oil, concrete, asphalt and other materials used in the construction industry.

I’ve known Rich for a long time, and he’s a good friend and a great person to work with. He has over 43 years of combined experience in geotechnical and environmental engineering and is truly an expert in his field. Rich also recently completed some soil testing at the Clark family’s Buttercup Ranch that’s currently being built in Colorado. I can personally vouch for his hard work and commitment to getting the job done right!
