Our Soil Laboratory
Soil type is a crucial aspect of any construction project and various factors need to be considered before the commencement of construction. How does this affect you? Have you considered the latter outcome of the completed project if the soil and rock conditions are not suffice to support the loads?
No construction company can afford to overlook this very simple, but critical aspect of any construction process. Ignorance towards these aspects might cost one more than just money at the end of the day.This is exactly where we form part of a construction project. By allowing for a soil laboratory service, we can ensure that all the required tests that include, soil tests, soil analysis, water analysis, soil sampling and even concrete tests are performed from the convenience of our container laboratory.
Our thorough analysis will provide you with the guarantee that your construction project will be successfully completed without any interruptions from the soil beneath your feet.
With the use of our soil laboratory testing service, you will safely be able to determine the following conditions of the soil:
- Whether or not the soil is suitable to tolerate the load of intended structures.
- Identify the soil and determine classification.
- Assess the soil to determine strength, density and compaction.
- Continuous evaluation of the soil during the construction processes, to ascertain whether or not the soil remains within the required specifications.
Our container laboratory is a mobile soil testing laboratory that can be transported and placed in different locations. Laboratory consulting services are sufficiently supplied with the use of containerised laboratories as all containers are equipped with the necessary tools and equipment to perform quality soil and sampling tests. These containers can be modified with various laboratory equipment supplies as project demands differ from project to project.
Global Laboratories only make use of trusted and reliable laboratory equipment suppliers and as an additional service, also supply laboratory equipment ourselves. Please contact us for more information about our services or related services in the field that we may be able to assist you with.
