BAM Ritchies

Geotechnical & Materials Testing

BAM Ritchies is able to provide geotechnical and materials testing either through our permanent depot laboratories at Kilsyth in Scotland and Erith in Kent or by the establishment of project site laboratories.

Testing solutions on offer are primarily for soil, rock, concrete and aggregate testing. We are also leaders in the in-situ and laboratory testing of sprayed concrete.
The operation and management of the laboratories are designed ensure full compliance with client’s and UKAS requirements.

The laboratories carry out testing as set out in the BAM Ritchies UKAS schedule. Additional testing out with our scope of accreditation includes sulphate, pH, organic matter and rock testing including determination of point load and uniaxial compressive strength.

Allied to our national Ground Investigation services, BAM Ritchies is able to offer these laboratory testing solutions to both internal and external clients.

The organisation has UKAS “Flexible Scope” accreditation for geotechnical and materials testing throughout the UK. This permits BAM Ritchies to establish and run UKAS accredited laboratories anywhere in the UK carrying out tests within the bounds of the “Flexible Scope” using the comprehensive and robust management processes and principles which are audited and approved.
