Aggregate Testing in the Bundaberg Area

Ensure the quality and safety of your construction projects with accurate aggregate testing. The strength and durability of materials like crushed stone, gravel, and sand significantly impact the performance of concrete and asphalt. At Geotechnical Services Bundaberg, we offer NATA-accredited aggregate testing services to clients in the Bundaberg region and surrounding areas that cover a variety of specifications, including those for concrete mixes, asphalt materials, drainage materials, and pavement gravels. These services help ensure that materials from quarry production conform to quality assurance requirements.

Additionally, by identifying issues with construction aggregates early on, you can reduce project delays and costs as the project progresses. Our comprehensive NATA accredited aggregate testing services in the Bundaberg region include, but are not limited to; clay and fine silt, particle density and water absorption, bulk density, wet/dry strength variation and particle size distribution,

Bundaberg Geotechnical Drilling

Geotechnical drilling is a crucial process that collects soil data prior to building construction, such as for infrastructure projects, roadways, dams, and buildings. Our Bundaberg drilling team uses purpose-built drill rigs to gather subsurface information that determines critical factors like required footing depth, stability, and potential subsurface movements.

Our team at Geotechnical Services Bundaberg is comprised highly experienced local drillers and technicians who possess extensive knowledge about the ground conditions and characteristics of the Bundaberg region and its surroundings. We are dedicated to delivering reliable and precise data, which helps in designing engineering projects that ensure their safety and success.

Compaction Control

To guarantee that construction materials and methods meet site specifications and standards, a range of compaction and earthworks testing services are necessary. At our Bundaberg laboratory, we provide comprehensive compaction control services that cover the Bundaberg, Isis, and Central Queensland regions. Our services ensure a sturdy working platform that minimizes the chances of early construction failures, and costly maintenance or repairs.

For civil construction projects involving residential or commercial developments, Level 1 Supervision and Certification during the bulk earthworks stage is usually required. Our Bundaberg team of qualified technicians conduct reliable Level 1 Site Supervision and Testing in compliance with the ‘AS3798-2007 Guidelines on Earthworks for Commercial and Residential Developments’.

We perform field density testing for earthworks, following AS3798 guidelines. We offer feedback and technical support to your chosen earthworks contractor during the project. Our NATA accredited Bundaberg laboratory employs modern equipment and techniques to analyse material density and moisture content, ensuring accurate results that comply with relevant standards.

We provide compaction control services that encompass a comprehensive report on completed work, test results summary, site maps, daily inspection records, and NATA-endorsed level 1 certification. This certification guarantees that our reports comply with the highest standards of quality and precision. By selecting our services, you can trust that your residential or commercial development project is in capable hands.

Site Classification Bundaberg

Accurate site classification is crucial for foundation design, as it determines the appropriate type of footing or foundation and the relevant design parameters. Neglecting to follow the guidelines outlined in the site classification report, based on Australian Standard AS 2870, could result in future foundation defects and damage. Our Bundaberg laboratory conducts soil testing to determine site classification, in accordance with AS 2870. This standard defines seven site classifications that Australian engineers and builders must consider when designing foundations. As part of our Site Classification services, we also offer wind rating and effluent disposal reports.

With over 35 years of experience in soil testing and site classification, we have accumulated extensive data from thousands of soil tests and boreholes across the Bundaberg, Gympie, Hervey Bay, and Sunshine Coast regions. Our extensive experience has enabled us to develop local and regional soil profiles, historical data, and site-specific information, including wind ratings, to provide comprehensive and accurate testing and classification services.
