construction materials testing

Operating throughout the UK and beyond, we work with clients of all sizes, analysing their sites, generating data from them and producing analytical reports that help keep them informed, compliant and on schedule.

Our construction materials testing team can test all materials from soils, aggregates and concrete to steel, paint, coatings, timber, bituminous materials and more. City Surveys’ network of UK-based laboratories not only work strictly to the very latest EU and UK standards, they are also UKAS accredited meaning you can 100% rely on the quality and accuracy of your data.

We understand that our clients need the right information at the right time and all at a competitive price in order to keep their projects on schedule and on budget. As engineers ourselves we appreciate the importance of providing reports that are written from the perspective of an engineer rather than a laboratory technician. We understand exactly what you need from a construction materials testing firm and, with many decades of relevant experience amongst us, we’ve got the knowledge to deliver it.
