With the increased emphasis on recycling, reducing waste going to landfill and reducing energy costs the use of stabilised materials in construction projects becomes more and more important. Using stabilised soils can also help to reduce the consumption of raw materials and the energy costs of transport. SOCOTEC is highly experienced in providing accredited testing required by Highways England documents.
Aggregate testing plays an important role in assessing new material sources, in situ behaviour, compliance and quality control. All aggregate testing is undertaken by SOCOTEC's experienced technical staff operating from our well equipped accredited laboratories.
