Geotechnical & Materials Engineering

INSPECTING THE IMPORTANT DETAILS - SMALL, BIG AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

At LRL, we go beyond addressing and examining the existing conditions of your site, our expert engineers also work closely with the design team and our clients to propose solutions given specific site constraints.

Over the years, we’ve had the opportunity to carry out hundreds of geotechnical site investigations, slope stability analyses, subsoil explorations, geotechnical considerations for foundation design as well as materials testing, both in the field and our in-house CCIL certified laboratory.

Our Specialties

Our materials and geotechnical engineering team digs beneath the surface to gain the knowledge necessary about the soil conditions of your site, or the material properties necessary for ensuring your project meets or exceeds industry standards in terms of quality, safety and longevity.

GEOTECHNICAL INVESTIGATIONS & DESIGN

Our engineers will assess and ensure the quality of subsurface rock and soil conditions on your proposed development site.

CONCRETE TESTING

Fresh concrete testing including verification of entrained air, slump, temperature, and the casting of concrete cylinders to be tested for compressive strength.

SLOPE STABILITY

Our engineers will assess the stability of the subject slope, and determine a safe setback distance for any permanent structures to be constructed in order to ensure the site will remain safe in both the long and short term.

REINFORCING STEEL INSPECTION

Inspection of the reinforcing steel to ensure conformance to the project’s structural drawings.

QUALITY CONTROL & TESTING

No matter what stage your project is at, our experienced field technicians and engineers can ensure your project is constructed as per the project requirements.

COMPACTION TESTING

In-situ compaction testing by use of a nuclear gauge to ensure the backfilling materials have been compacted to their respective compaction requirement.

Subgrade Inspections

Our technicians will inspect and test the subgrade soil to ensure a proper bearing surface has been reached.

ESTIMATED PERCOLATION TIME (T-TIME) ANALYSIS

Determination of the estimated percolation of material intended to be used for septic systems.
