Materials/Concrete

geotech-materials-concreteMaterials Lab

With close to three decades of sampling & testing for various companies related to the construction industry, it was a natural step to incorporate sampling & testing of materials and concrete into our offered services. Over the last three years we have made a serious financial commitment to equip our facility with the right personnel, equipment and resources to conduct various testing and analysis on concrete and materials.
