Our UKAS accredited geotechnical laboratory is based in our Coventry head office. We carry out a wide range of rock and soil testing, which can provide vital data for construction projects.

Foundation design depends on reliable strength and compressibility data, as well as soil classification and grading, and analysing soil to determine any chemical aggression to concrete. 

Investigating slope stability issues requires the measurement of long term soil behaviour. For roads and earthworks, our team can assess the suitability of soils for use in embankments, together with subgrade characteristics for road pavement design.

Some of our 50 accredited tests include...

  • Triaxial
  • Shear box
  • Particle size distribution
  • Index property
  • CBR
  • Chemical analysis
  • Rock strength
  • Consolidation
  • Compaction
  • MCV
  • Lime/soil interaction
  • Density
