Our materials technology teams provide robust, cost-effective and timely solutions for materials-related issues to all types of infrastructure and building projects.
As an employee owned global business, our teams provide continuity of knowledge of clients' assets over many years and a deep understanding of asset condition and business needs. This enables us to create value through targeted solutions to economically extend service life and minimise loss of asset utility.
We provide services including construction material durability and selection, condition assessment and rehabilitation, cathodic protection design, monitoring and troubleshooting, construction phase quality testing and certification across multiple industries, including commercial and heritage property, water and wastewater, power, oil and gas, industrial, marine, roads, tunnels and bridges.
Our North American laboratory undertakes materials testing and research that provides direct client benefit through improved and innovative materials solutions. We have pioneered the use of many technologies and our global team members have led the development of industry standards and guidelines, such as the Concrete Institute of Australia Z7 Durability series, and the 2017 Water Services Association of Australia manual for selection and application of protective coatings.
We bring a combination of state-of-the-art scientific knowledge and practical engineering skills to our clients' projects. Our holistic approach to asset durability from concept design, through construction, operation and end-of-life decommissioning allows owners to operate their assets while achieving efficiencies and optimising expenditure.
