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.

Within our dedicated UKAS accredited testing laboratories (0578) we are able to offer a wide range of acoustic services including UKAS accredited sound insulation testing of a wide variety of construction and building products, in addition to sound power testing of mechanical systems such as MVHR, heatpumps and fans.
We undertake specialist testing and investigations into the real behaviour of structures, systems and products. Our structures laboratory is big enough to test at full scale, taking loads from 1kN to 10,000kN.
Fire safety testing
With one of the largest fire research and testing laboratories in Europe, we offer fire resistance testing for the construction, marine, offshore and other industries.
Wind load testing
Among the best in the UK, our wind engineering test facilities include wind tunnels in which natural wind can be simulated for environments ranging from open country to city centres.
Indoor environment testing
Our testing and monitoring services include: acoustics, airtightness testing, energy use, HVAC, air quality, lighting assessments, pollution and ventilation.
