Quality Assurance Compaction Testing and Verification
Expert analysis of local and further materials allows Civil Services to undertake and carry out quality testing on foundation investigations, designers, builders, earthworks, pavement layers (subgrade CBR verification, subbase and basecourse compaction), soakage and permeability testing and calculations. All from small garages to rural/lifestyles sections to larger subdivisions. Civil Services covers a wide variety of testing as per NZ Standards or best practice.
The team can undertake these in the field for investigations ranging from detailed hand augering logs, Dynamic Cone Penetration (Scala Penetrometer) for bearing capacity and compaction verification, Nuclear density meter testing of hard fill compaction, bulk earthworks moisture and air void measurements, undrained shear strength and residual strength, Clegg Impact Values on hard fill, Benkelman Beam testing for pre-seal deflection measurements, moisture calculations of various materials and Swedish weight sounding.
