Nicholls Colton – On Site

On Site

It is not always appropriate to carry out tests in a laboratory – sometimes in-situ tests represent the most suitable way to gather the data needed on a construction project. Nicholls Colton Group therefore provides an extensive On-Site Testing service, to complement our UKAS accredited Laboratory.

Our On-Site Testing operation has been serving the complex needs of the civil engineering sector for 50 years, working closely with major contractors for earthworks and infrastructure projects, house-builders, local authorities, commercial developers, soil stabilisation contractors, remediation contractors and many more.

A number of the key tests are *UKAS accredited.

Nicholls Colton Group’s On Site Testing services include CBR and Plate Bearing tests, Nuclear Density, Sand Replacement Density, Core cutter Density, Moisture Condition Value, Moisture, Plasticity and Hand Shear Vane – many of these tests being carried out as part of an earthworks project. We can sample soils (for which we are UKAS accredited) and undertake Specification for Highway Works Appendix 6/1 Compliance Testing.

On construction sites our services include sampling fresh concrete, slump, air content and making test cubes. We also undertake aggregate sampling.

Particularly advantageous for our On-site Testing clients is Nicholls Colton Group’s in-house laboratory. Nicholls Colton Group’s fully equipped laboratory holds *UKAS and *MCERTS accreditation for many key laboratory tests (please see link to our schedule below).
