Testconsult provides a full range of NDT and inspection techniques to assess the condition of concrete and masonry structures and bridges, considering all structural materials. Testing includes chemical testing to check for contaminants both in soils and in concrete. Common tests on concrete include chloride ion, sulphate and cement content analysis.

Projects frequently carried out include post-tensioned bridge inspections – to check the condition of tendons, BA 35/90 bridge inspections, car park assessments and culvert surveys.

Testconsult has over 20 years’ experience in structural materials testing and with the knowledge base we have regarding this field of work, can give contractors, civil, structural and consulting engineers relevant advice and cost effective solutions. Our structural investigation section can carry out appropriate surveying, sampling and testing to identify the causes of premature degradation and advise on the most appropriate remedial action required.

Testconsult also has specialised teams offering environmental testing services to help accurately monitor and measure the impact your construction project has on the surrounding environment. This may involve hiring equipment for a short term project or installing sophisticated monitoring systems such as our Octopus instrumentation system for a long term monitoring system for noise and or vibration.
