What we want

Vision: A Need for Change

A steep increase in deficient infrastructure across the world is prompting more frequent inspection, repair, and rehabilitation efforts.

What We do


NEXCO-West USA's mission is to provide the transportation industry with solutions that will revolutionize the structural inspection processes. Supplementing direct, classical methods of evaluation, we strive to introduce a new phase in the maintenance paradigm: a rapid yet thorough scanning of structures on a network-level to determine priority levels of further in-depth inspection.

What we believe


Contribution to the safety and serviceability of the world's infrastructure is our main priority. Our conviction is channeled into everything we do: from our everyday inspection work, to our pragmatic research and development efforts.


We tackle emergent topics in the civil, transportation, and structural engineering fields using our knowledgeable staff and global network. Our multilingual staff also communicates information across borders to reach greater understanding about various economies.
