Consultancy / Troubleshooting / Testing Services

A troubleshooting consultancy and testing service on new or existing concretes including X ray diffraction, electron miscroscopy and strength testing.


Our success with contractors and designers is based on a thorough knowledge of cement chemistry and construction techniques. In addition to our product range, we work with clients, where required, to provide a consultancy service advising on cement, concrete and construction chemistry to optimise the economics and quality of a project. We have a wealth of experience in formulating and sourcing of raw materials, and on the choice of plant and equipment. We can work on a retained basis or employed on an individual project . Where a client requires a design analysis, performance review of locally available raw materials or products we can offer competitive analysis rates.


Not all concrete is a success. We are often called in to trouble shoot on contracts.

Our most common areas being:

Testing Services

We offer a comprehensive range of testing facilities through our associated network of academic and commercial consultants.

As an option we can advise on setting up your own project laboratory, or the steps you need to take to record and control quality of the concrete produced on site.

We can also look at locally available recycled materials as aggregates, thus decreasing the carbon footprint of the project, and allowing specifiers to address environmental concerns.

If you have a project where you feel we can help or just require further information please Contact Us.
