We pride ourselves on being able to provide the answer to virtually any construction-related testing question.

Backed by an extraordinary range of test facilities, our experts test individual materials and products, building systems, engineering structures and whole buildings, using established methods and bespoke research tests and simulations. We typically test against published standards, but can develop dedicated procedures for new, unique or innovative products.
