Soils & Stabilised Soils Testing

We undertake soils and stabilised soils testing for the construction and geotechnical industries. Take a look below at the types of tests we offer from our central laboratory and on your site to help with assessing ground strength, density and classification

Ground Strength Testing
CBR Testing

CBR Testing for  roads, pile mats, crane bases...more

Plate Bearing Testing

Plate bearing Testing for pile mats, crane bases, geotechnical...more

LWD Testing

Lightweight Deflectometer Testing for  roads, pile mats, crane bases...more

Shear Vane Testing

Used to obtain shear strength in clays

DCP Testing

Dynamic Cone Penetrometer Testing to obtain CBR for  roads and geotechnical

Triaxial Testing

Shear strength on undisturbed or remoulded samples

Density & Compaction Testing
