Materials Engineering and Testing
WSP has its own laboratories and a network of accredited laboratories for the assessment of concrete and cement-based products, asphalt paving, aggregates, structural steel, coatings, timber, and composites to support the investigations and design of a variety of engineering disciplines.
Our experts conduct soil and footing inspections, reinforcing steel inspection, concrete testing with certified staff and laboratory facilities, structural steel inspection and shoring inspection. Our teams are qualified and certified to conduct the necessary testing associated with geotechnical investigations of the physical/mechanical properties and characteristic behaviours of surface and subsurface earth materials. Notable projects include assessment of deterioration, corrosion, chemical attack, and failure of structures. A large part of our work relates to the assessment and rehabilitation of existing structures and the effective use of new and existing materials to achieve durability and extended service life. We also help clients identify and manage the quality risks they are exposed to by suppliers, contractors and subcontractors.
Quality Management ensures we coordinate activities that direct and control processes related to Quality Planning, Quality Control (QC), Quality Assurance (QA), and Quality Improvement.
