UKAS Extension to Scope

by Elizabeth Withington 04/11/2016 filed under Laboratory Services


Geotechnical Engineering is delighted to announce an extension of our scope in our UKAS accredited geotechnical laboratory testing.  We have now added Particle Density, Shear Strength, one dimensional consolidation and unconfined compressive strength to our already comprehensive list.  The United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) is the national accreditation body for the United Kingdom, recognised by government, to assess against internationally agreed standards, organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.


We value this accreditation, not only because it provides our clients with reassurance that the data we produce can be used in confidence to reduce their risk, but because it is a formal recognition that we are competent to perform specific processes, activities and tasks in a reliable, credible and accurate manner. The accreditation also underpins the quality of our results by ensuring their traceability, comparability and validity.


A full schedule of our accreditation can be viewed at  Please contact us for more information on how our experience and capability can help you.
