Concrete and Shotcrete Testing

Concrete Testing

Macquarie Geotechnical undertakes both field and laboratory testing of concrete and shotcrete.

This is essential to ensure the quality and performance of the material used during construction and confirms its meets the requirements.

We have a fleet of vehicles fully equipped to work on mine sites and are able to collect samples of concrete in the field or accept samples provided by a client for testing.

Please see below for a full list of our accreditation.
