Compaction Control

Our Gympie laboratory offers extensive compaction and earthworks testing services that are required for various construction projects to ensure that the materials and methods meet the required specifications and standards of the site. Our Gympie compaction control services cover the entire Gympie, Cooloola Coast, Noosa, and Sunshine Coast regions and provide a robust working platform that reduces the risk of premature failure of construction and costly maintenance or repairs.

At our Gympie laboratory, we offer level one services, including full-time onsite supervision by experienced technicians. We use a portable nuclear density gauge to conduct field density testing for earthworks, ensuring that the testing is carried out accurately and efficiently. Our testing procedures comply with AS3798, and we provide feedback and technical assistance to your nominated earthworks contractor throughout the project. Additionally, our Gympie laboratory offers analysis of material density and moisture content using modern equipment and techniques to ensure accurate results that meet the relevant standards.

Our compaction control services include a detailed report outlining the work completed, a summary of test results, site maps, daily site inspection records, and level 1 certification, which is NATA endorsed. This certification ensures that our reports meet the highest standards of quality and accuracy. By choosing our services, you can be confident that your residential or commercial development project is in good hands.

Residential Soil Testing in Gympie

When constructing a residential property in the Gympie, Noosa or Sunshine Coast area, it is essential to carry out thorough soil testing to ensure that the foundation can support the weight of the house and prevent damage from soil movements. The soil testing process involves collecting soil samples from different depths and testing them for physical properties such as composition, strength, and load-bearing capacity. These tests are conducted both on-site and in our NATA accredited Gympie laboratory. The data collected is then used to determine the site classification, which is a classification system used to evaluate the suitability of the soil for building and to design the appropriate foundation for the site. Our soil testing services are comprehensive and designed to provide reliable results that will help ensure the safety, quality, and environmental impact of your residential construction project.

Having been in the soil testing and site classification industry for more than 35 years, we have gathered decades of data from thousands of boreholes and soil tests throughout the Gympie, Hervey Bay, Sunshine Coast and Bundaberg regions. As a result, we have developed local and regional profiles of soil compositions, historic data, as well as wind ratings and site-specific data.
