We are pleased to offer our services for a large range of structural and civil engineering requirements. We have had extensive experience and offer a prompt and professional service for: 
Soil & Geotechnical Investigations & Report

Testing to determine the most economic and suitable foundation recommendations for individual sites due to the soil types and strengths encountered. Slope stability analysis can be carried out if required.

Onsite Waste Water Disposal Investigations & Design

Testing to determine the site requirements needed for waste water systems to cater for specific building plans.

Foundations • Beam/Lintel • Steelworks • Masonry Building • Retaining Wall • Residential • Industrial • Commercial • Smaller Subdivisions • Farm Bridge & Cattle Underpasses • Telecommunication Masts & Towers.

Structural Design & Drawing

 

We have a range of non-destructive testing equipment in our Hamilton Based Office. One of our experienced staff members is happy to assist by traveling to site and helping you with this. Do you need testing carried out on of your projects? Your testing requirements:

NDT James Rebarscope - RC400

The Rebarscope enables the user to not only locate reinforcement bars but also determine rebar depth and the rebar size. It is also capable of locating non-ferrous metals: such as copper, aluminium, some stainless steels, wire, and more. 

Often referred to as a Schmidt or Swiss Hammer, the manual rebound concrete test hammer is the most widely used nondestructive instrument which provides a quick and simple test for obtaining an immediate indication of concrete strength in various applications.

NDT James W-M-250 Rebound Hammer (Schimidt Hammer)

The Clegg Impact Soil Tester provides a means for measuring and controlling soil strength and consolidation levels in various construction applications. A precision accelerometer mounted on the hammer feeds its output to a handheld digital readout unit.
