Earthworks Conformance Testing

Conformance testing is vital to any earthworks project to ensure the construction materials and placement methods undertaken are meeting the design specification requirements. Our highly experienced field and laboratory staff provide a comprehensive range of field services and laboratory testing for soil, road base, concrete, rock and aggregate materials to Australian Standard and RMS specifications.

Level 1 – Inspection & Testing

The primary objective of Level 1 inspection and testing is for the geotechnical inspection & testing authority (GITA) to be able to express an opinion on the compliance of the work. The GITA is responsible for ensuring that the materials, inspections and testing are adequate for its intended purpose and meeting design specification requirements. Full time supervision is required onsite during bulk earthworks operations.

Level 2 – Sampling & Testing

A geotechnical testing authority (GTA) will be appointed to carry out sampling and testing as required or specified. The GTA is responsible for selecting the location of sampling and testing operations within each visit made to the site. Full time supervision is not required during bulk earthworks operations.
