Construction Materials Testing

Our laboratory and field testing services are critical components for the design and construction of mining, roads and infrastructure projects.

As a principal provider of Construction Materials Testing (CMT) throughout Australia, we are a trusted source in delivering efficient and accurate results.

A site evaluation from our soil technicians can identify and resolve potential building hazards by improving the quality and performance of your existing ground materials. For bespoke, large-scale developments, we have the flexibility to work around your location.

Our laboratory teams and NATA accredited facilities are capable of shifting to temporary settings, ensuring that we can always adapt to any type of project.

Our clients benefit from a streamlined experience, brought to life by our extensive range of equipment, custom built project management software and quality reporting and results.

Assessment starts from the ground up

Technical assessment of soil and rock characteristics is a critical component of designing large-scale civil construction, infrastructure & mining projects, and it’s something we’ve been helping our clients with since 1994. The safety and feasibility of a project relies on disciplines like CMT to reveal any issues or future risks associated with the construction, and to eliminate them through an engineering process.

Our dedicated mobile teams can provide high quality testing results from the initial design phase of a project right through to the construction phase. As we understand the importance of a prompt turnaround of accurate test results, we’re set up with a large network of NATA accredited laboratories and equipment fleet right across Australia and New Zealand. We’ve also have the latest geomechanical testing equipment and associated data acquisition & instrumentation.

Our CMT business is the leader in quality, data security and innovation. We have developed a seamless software system to record and store all of our project data. COMPLY is able to track results, data changes, and the trending of material & test results. This digital solution provides our clients with confidence, as it covers a wide range of soil, aggregate and concrete test methods for various standards. It has helped us to maintain our position as leaders in the industry.
