GeoSearch Geotechnical Testing Laboratory was established in 2010, being equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and qualified personnel that is observing the requirements under current in force legislation. The Laboratory undergoes constant assessments, and currently being able of conducting a wide range of physical and mechanical testworks.

Physical Testworks
