CMTL’s expert field technicians test a range of materials on-site to provide fast, accurate results.

Materials such as soils, aggregate and concrete testing for contaminants enable your project team to deliver to project deadlines and ensure compliance with guidelines and regulations.

Comprehensive Concrete Sampling

Concrete Sampling

Our comprehensive concrete sampling and testing enables accurate assessment of the quality of both fresh and hardened concrete. Available at every stage of your project, we can provide on-site consistency testing ranging from slump testing to flow table.

Testing of construction materials
Aggregates Analysis

Aggregate Testing

Our wide range of aggregate testing methods meets British and European Standards, together with Standard Highways MCHW requirements. On-site capabilities include both mechanical and physical testing on natural and recycled aggregates to ensure they are fit for purpose.

In-depth Soil Analysis

Soil Testing

We can deliver soil testing with quick, accurate turnaround to look at soil strength, density, compaction and contamination data. Providing these results on-site throughout the project as required can ensure your construction process goes smoothly, achieving project deadlines.
