We provide a fully independent service for testing soils, aggregate, bituminous and concrete material, both on site laboratories and in our Portlaoise laboratory.

The structural testing department carries out pile integrity testing, SIMBAT dynamic load testing, sonic logging, noise and vibration studies, instrumentation and monitoring of structures, condition surveys of bridges buildings and structures, in situ load tests on structures and components and specialises in lift shaft beam assessment. We also hire out noise and vibration monitors.
