COMPACTION CONTROL TESTING

Macquarie Geotechnical is able to offer a full range of compaction and earthworks testing, in the field and the laboratory.Compaction and Earthworks testing is vital to any project as it ensures that the material used and methods undertaken are meeting the specifications for the site.

Level 1 and level 2 supervision can be provided in accordance with AS3798. We are able to offer in-situ Nuclear Density testing, Benkelman Beam deflection testing, and provide materials assessment to ensure conformity to the required specifications.
