    • Yes, we do. Being located in neighbouring Hertfordshire means we can easily service clients across the entire county of Bedfordshire. We regularly work in the larger towns of Luton, Bedford and Leighton Buzzard. We've also completed a number of projects in smaller Bedfordshire towns such as Dunstable, Sandy and Kempston.

    • Yes, we can offer an out-of-hours and weekend service if required. We've done this many times for clients whose operations are unable to continue while we conduct our site and structural investigation services. We're often required to work around other trades without disrupting their works, and will do all we can to accommodate working outside of our normal hours (9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday).

    • Our specialist concrete scanning team can help you choose between services such as concrete covermeter surveys, Hilti ferroscan surveys, ultrasonic testing, and GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) concrete scanning. Get in touch with the team on 01923 551 889 to receive expert help.

    • Knowing exactly which type of structural investigation is required may not always be clear. By speaking to our specialist team you can receive expert advice that will help you make the right decision. Contact our engineers on 01923 551 889.

    • Our construction materials testing services include dynamic cone penetrometer (DCP) testing, hand shear vane testing, core cutter density testing, sand replacement density (SRD) testing, and laboratory based construction materials testing. Our expert engineers can help demystify these methods, explaining the pros, cons and suitability of each. Contact our team using our online form or by calling 01923 551 889.

    • For most clients a report is delivered within 10 working days. If you need it more quickly than that you should let us know before you instruct us. Whilst there can be the odd occasion where site or structural challenges can delay reporting, if we foresee any issues we'll always let you know as soon as possible.

    • Yes, we can. We have many team members who are fully trained and experienced in working in confined spaces.

    • Absolutely. This is a key area of our work so all of our specialist engineers have working at height qualifications with certification from industry recognised bodies such as IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) and PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ & Manufacturers’ Association Ltd). MEWPs (mobile elevated work platforms) or towers can be brought to site, if required.

    • Once we've received your formal instruction, we'll usually aim to be on site within 1 to 2 weeks. This lead time is determined by our workload and the nature of your project. If you need us on site more quickly, simply let us know and we'll do what we can to accommodate your request.

    • We price our work based upon a series of day rates, regularly checking against the industry to ensure we remain highly competitive. For your personalised quotation, just get in touch using our online form or by calling 01923 551 889.
