Housing and Residential Developments

Simtec testing for residential developments. Roads, cycleways and Footways

The nationwide need for more and more homes has lead to a dramatic increase in the number of residential developments. The roads and footways provided need to meet Local Authority requirements and expectations. Section 38  and Section 278 agreements insist on a minimum standard for workmanship and materials and Simtec is well equipped to supply the necessary testing services.

We can help ensure compliance to standards and specifications with high quality site and laboratory testing. Our skilled technicians can carry out materials sampling and testing to subgrade layers, sub base and bituminous materials. Additionally we can carry out end product testing of all surfacing layers.

Frequently Asked Questions

The size of sample depends on the material and the reason for the testing. Simtec Materials Testing can offer advice once we know the nature of the tests required. The more information you can supply, for example, client, site name, date sampled, material type, specification etc the more accurately we can advise you. A purchase order is normally required at this stage.
