Challenging below ground conditions often call for extra due diligence. And in these situations it’s vital to produce a clear picture of the environment that you’re working with.

From routine geotechnical testing to the production of highly specialist test data, we can address a range of industry challenges.

Our technical experts conduct tailored and specialised tests to address unique and unpredictable environments – assisting with both geotechnical design and the safety of operations. 

By determining the mix of sand, silt or clay in the soil we can establish the predicted behaviour of soils in a geotechnical design.

And can ascertain the permeability of soils for water retaining structures, tailings dams and landfill leachate containment systems to ensure design are set for safe operations.

Our specialty tests include:

  • triaxial compression tests
  • unconfined compression test
  • consolidation tests
  • solid density tests
  • direct shear test (100 mm & 300 mm)
  • hydrometer/sedimentation
  • particle-size analysis
  • permeability tests
  • pin-hole dispersion test
  • chemical testing
