Rezwan is the Managing Director at Construction Materials Testing Group (CMTG) located in Kansas City, MO. He oversees the quality control/quality assurance testing operations in asphalt and soils. Rezwan’s responsibilities also include managing the growth of the laboratory and personnel.
Rezwan has three and a half years of industry experience in pavement engineering, consulting, geotechnical engineering, and materials testing and inspections through working at Fugro, Terracon, and CMTG.
In addition, Rezwan has a strong multi-disciplinary background with over 10 years of research experience and expertise in structural analysis using the finite element method for studying stress-strain output due to complex input loads on different structural applications ranging from biomechanics, automotives to civil engineering applications such as asphalt pavements, and geotechnical analysis. While at Texas A&M University, Rezwan was part of an asphalt research consortium involving multiple universities advancing the understanding of asphaltic materials funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
During his time at Texas A&M University, Rezwan — under the guidance of Dr. Amit Bhasin and Dr. Dallas Little — became the first person to discover the initiation and propagation of microcracking in asphalt binder at a micron length scale due to tensile loads using Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM).

Long Term Pavement Performance – Various locations in OK and TX
As a pavement engineer, performed Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) testing to determine structural capacity of pavement sections at various sites in Texas and Oklahoma. The project was established to collect pavement performance data nationwide as part of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) and was funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
I-71 – Denver, CO
As a pavement engineer, used the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) to provide pavement design recommendations for the I-71 project in Denver, Colorado. The project involved expanding the Interstate-71 to include additional lanes for accommodating higher traffic. Rezwan was able to provide cost-effective design recommendations based on the local geology and weather conditions.
Louisiana DOT – Various Parishes in Louisiana
As a pavement engineer, analyzed pavement distress and condition data for various parishes and prepared reports for the Louisiana Department of Transportation. The project involved studying the condition of pavement sections across multiple parishes in Louisiana and providing an assessment of the pavements based on distress data collected. Rezwan provided the Louisiana DOT with a comprehensive analysis of the pavement conditions to help develop a pavement rehabilitation plan.
ONCOR – Multiple Locations, TX
As a geotechnical engineer, logged soil samples, and observed standard penetration test (SPT) at various sites around Texas for the construction of ONCOR power transmission lines. In addition, assigned laboratory tests, reviewed laboratory test data, and prepared geotechnical reports with design recommendations.
University of Texas Robert B. Rowling Hall – Austin, TX
As a materials testing engineer, reviewed construction plans, coordinated field testing services, and reviewed testing and inspection reports for clients for the construction of the Robert B. Rowling Hall at the University of Austin. The project involved the construction of a 497,500 square-foot graduate business facility at the University of Texas Austin campus with a total project cost of $186 million. The facility comprised of five stories above grade and six stories below which were designed for parking.
Expo Building One – Austin, TX
As a project manager, oversaw testing and inspections for a 100,000 square-foot reinforced concrete tilt wall building. Responsibilities included reviewing testing and inspection reports, making sure the test results and inspection results were found to be within the guidelines and requirements of the project, and provide clients with these results in timely manner. Terracon was able to provide inspection and testing services in a timely manner, and review reports and send them to clients without delays.
Seven Oaks Office Park – Austin, TX
As a project manager, oversaw testing and inspections for a five-story 180,000 square-foot reinforced concrete office building, and a 180,000 square-foot, five-story garage with a tunnel connecting the two structures. Responsibilities included reviewing testing and inspection reports, making sure the test results and inspection results are within the plans and specifications of the project, and provide clients with these results in timely manner.
Double Creek Tract – Round Rock, TX
As a project manager, overseeing testing and inspections for two one-story buildings with drilled pier foundations systems, slab-on-grade floors, structural steel and tilt-wall panel framing with a combined footprint of 57,000 square feet reinforced concrete office building. Responsibilities include reviewing testing and inspection reports, making sure the test results and inspection results are within the plans and specifications of the project, and providing clients with these results in timely manner.
