Geotechnical - Soils

Geotechnical soil testing is essential for the quality control of any earthworks project regardless of its size. Lab and Field provides extensive field and laboratory soil testing services.

Our senior soil technicians provide construction earthworks advice and provide a level of service on every project that is second to none. This assists in the efficient and successful completion of any given project. We specialise in residential and commercial subdivisions, roads, services, infrastructure projects, inspection and testing plan (ITP) preparation and management and level 1 compaction control and reporting.

Mobile or Site Labs

Should your project require a mobile or site lab, Lab and Field is NATA Accredited for the provision Annex Labs for the duration of the project. These will be established to suit your project testing needs and to provide quick, efficient and accurate results so that your project is not delayed. Please contact us should you wish to discuss the provision of these labs.
