Materials Compliance Testing

We will soon have a UKAS accredited geotechnical laboratory located within our head office in Durham.

Exploration & Testing Associates offers a comprehensive range of site and laboratory construction materials testing required on most infrastructure and civils projects.

Our fully trained and audited site technicians carry out sampling and testing to BS EN, ISO, ASTM and Highways Compliance Standards.

We are able to offer advice and guidance on testing methods to ensure the most appropriate testing method is adopted; our fast turnaround and customer-specific method of reporting results also mean you get the results when you need them, and in an easy to read format.

Our materials testing services are available for use on civil engineering projects across the UK; including highways, infrastructure, commercial and residential developments.
