Lab Testing

Lab testing offers the best possible insights into the condition of the soil on site, providing specific data which can reduce costs and improve structural outcomes.

With over 35 years of experience working in the residential construction industry, our state of the art testing equipment provides accurate and timely reporting.

State of the art testing for optimal review of soil condition

Soil testing every site gives us a very clear picture of the site in question, and lab testing takes this another step forward. Our laboratory testing can identify fine-grained intolerances in the soil, and it also provides specific data on the load-bearing properties and tolerances of the underlying soil at each site. They can also highlight future trends.

Obtaining a more detailed picture of site geology

Data collection allows us to develop the most sustainable engineering solution for each project. This type of lab testing is especially useful for project builders working on new developments in upcoming housing estates. Lab testing of the soil can give builders a very detailed picture of the site geology, providing a head start for their marketing.

Highly specialised testing to assess soil reactivity

Our lab testing provides an even more detailed picture of the site geology and soil conditions, providing specific data on the deep seated soil properties that allow us to design with greater accuracy for the soil reactivity. The testing we do is highly specialised, and is state of the art when it comes to evaluating soil reactivity.

By doing this we optimise the clarity of the information, ensuring that LIS is constantly evolving and remaining relevant to current areas of development; as new data is included some of the old data is retired to alternative data sets.

We combine our extensive local experience with soil testing and real-world data from LIS to work towards the optimal outcome for every project. These insights are handed to our team, who are able to develop cost-effective and sustainable solutions.

A quick peek into part of our  report

LIS information improves the accuracy and relevance of Ys estimations/calculations.
Filled sites pose problems, one of which being where Clay fill originated from.
The nearby LIS data provides assistance in the evaluation of any imported fill.

LIS data allows us to make accurate comparisons between sites.

Data captured by LIS can report on deep clay zones in each site.
The data captured by LIS also reveals fill depth differences.
