Soils and aggregate testing

James Fisher Testing Services' laboratories are well-equipped to deal with large soil and aggregate testing projects, providing a fast turn-around of accurate and informative results.

The properties in soil can hugely affect the basic structure and construction materials used during a project. Testing for soil strength, density, compaction and contamination data as well as determining the chemical properties, are vital to making good decisions during the construction process.

Our satellite laboratories can provide a bespoke and cost-effective solution for materials testing on larger projects, which require results quickly.
