Laboratory Testing of Soils

Laboratory Testing of Soils

Laboratory Testing of Soils has always been a fundamental part of the services we provide. Soils are the foundation of numerous construction projects whether being built on in-situ or being excavated and subsequently placed as a fill material.  To ensure a soil is suitable for its intended use Nicholls Colton carry out a wide range of soil testing within their central laboratories for both physical and chemical properties.  Testing is generally as detailed in BS1377, universally recognised in the UK as the standard against which soil properties are classified.
