The logo used between 2010 and 2018 was derived as a summary of the key elements of Strata Lab's testing. Namely, Nuclear density Testing, Concrete and road materials.
In 2019, Strata Lab underwent a rebranding and now boasts a new, modern, simple logo which highlights varies layers of "strata" as well as the profile of a concrete cube, incorporates the "S" for Strata Lab and inherently displays a road indicative of road material testing.
We offer a variety of tests on soils and gravels. Our aim is to provide accurate test results, for engineers and contractors, to determine the characteristics and quality of construction materials, before, during and after construction. Our range of tests include on-site testing as well as those carried out in our well equipped laboratory by competent staff.
There are a range of concrete tests conducted in our laboratory. On-site services such as making test cubes and coring concrete can be arranged for sampling and testing. We offer a spectrum of compressive strength tests on concrete cubes and precast concrete products. Concrete mix designs and mix verification can also be performed.
Strata Lab conducts aggregate testing that assists customers to assess the characteristics and quality of aggregates for use in concrete, building/construction and/or asphalt mixes. Tests are conducted by competent staff in a well equipped environment and on-site services can be arranged for any additional testing and/or sampling.
Strata Lab has identified the need for geotechnical site investigations as an area to expand into. With skilled professionals and years of experience in the industry, we aim to assist our customers with the following services: Borrow Pit Investigations, Water Pipeline and Reservoir/Pump Investigations, New Road and Road Rehabilitation Investigations, Structural Development Investigations, Township/School Sanitation Investigations and Hard Rock Quarry Analysis.
Mr Elwyn Hoft and his dedicated team have always been a pleasure to deal with. We have found their service and attention to detail to be of an extremely high standard and would not hesitate to recommend Strata Lab to other entities.
