GEOLABS is one of the largest independent geotechnical soils, rocks and associated materials testing laboratories in the United Kingdom with in-house facilities that can perform a wide range of test procedures to British Standards and other National and International Standards.
The GEOLABS laboratories have been UKAS Accredited since 1999 and have held accreditation for effective stress testing since 2000.
Routine testing also extends to consolidation testing, shear boxes, ring shears and permeability tests.
The facility also has high pressure cells and high pressure maintainers to allow tests to be undertaken with effective pressures in excess of 1000kPa and confining pressures of up to 3500kPa. Other advanced testing includes Stress Path Tests.
Most sites require an element of contamination testing to ensure that there are no contaminants present within the ground or groundwater. However, sites with known contamination or previous land use which could leave contaminants in the ground will have extensive analytical testing requirements to assess the location and concentrations of these contaminants.
We utilise the KeyLogbook system which creates bar coded sample labels on site. These can be attached to samples and can be scanned directly into the analytical labs LIMS systems to offer full chain of custody and prevent sample orphanage or lost samples.
No matter how big or small your project, we offer unrivalled levels of quality. From our project management through to our sampling techniques – we can provide dynamic solutions to all of your most pressing Ground Investigation needs.
