Are you looking for the best geotechnical laboratory testing for your next residential and commercial construction project? GES is here to help you in the most efficient and reliable manner.

Wide Range of Lab Tests

At GES, we offer a fully-trained and professional team of lab technicians and civil engineers who are fully-capable of conducting services of any nature and size. We follow relevant Australian Standards to ensure that the tests are fully compliant and standardized. What’s even more important is that we have full-scope of equipment and technology needed to conduct all kinds of standard civil laboratory testing. Count on us to offer reliable laboratory testing as: 

Geotechnical testing:

NATA test: 

·        Soil sampling    ·      Liquid limit, plastic limit, linear shrinkage, plasticity index   ·        Soil particle density

·        Moisture content    ·        Shrink-swell index

·        Soil particle size distribution (PSD) —sieving method    ·        Dynamic cone penetration (DCP)

·        Soil compaction – standard/modified/Hilf/compaction control test  

 ·       Field density with nuclear density gauge

Non NATA test: 

·         Particle size distribution of a soil – hydrometer method    ·          Emerson class number of a soil.   

·          Emerson class number of a soil. ·         Unconfined compressive strength (UCS) of compacted materials 

·         CBR test – soaked/un-soaked      ·         Permeability test – constant head/falling head

·        Lime Saturation Point of soil (pH Method)   ·         Lime Stabilized Materials to establish the Dry Density – Moisture Content Relationship

·        Cement Stabilized Materials to establish the Dry Density – Moisture Content Relationship.

Concrete testing:

Non NATA test: 

·         Sampling of concrete.   ·         Slump test.  ·         Slump flow, T500 and J-ring test

·         Making and curing concrete – Compression and indirect tensile test specimens.

·         Making and curing concrete – Flexural test specimens.

·         Making and curing concrete – Mortar and grout specimens.

·         Mass per unit volume of hardened concrete-Rapid measuring method.

·         Air content of freshly mixed concrete

Aggregate testing:

Non NATA test: 

·         Sampling   ·         Bulk density   ·       Particle density and water absorption of fine/coarse aggregate.

·        Particle size distribution – Sieving method.   ·         Materials finer than 75 μm in aggregates (by washing).

·         Flakeness index.
