GEOTECHNICAL LABORATORY TESTING

divider

Based at the head office in Coventry, the company's in-house UKAS accredited laboratory provides geotechnical and geoenvironmental testing in conjunction with or independently of investigations and specialist advice.

Strength and compressibility data, together with soil classification and grading, are required for foundation design whilst potential aggression to concrete can be determined from chemical analysis.

Investigation of sites which slope, or where slopes are to be formed, requires the measurement of long term soil behaviour. For roads and earthworks, the suitability of soils for use in embankments needs to be assessed together with subgrade characteristics for road pavement design.
