Road Science operates three re-locatable mobile laboratories, with the ability to scale up as a project may require. All of Road Science’s mobile facilities are equipped and managed to provide IANZ accredited testing of soils, aggregates, concrete and asphalt for specific project work. Our experienced Laboratory Technicians manage and operate the mobile laboratories to provide IANZ testing and technical services on site. The mobile laboratories can also act as a base for the field testing offered by Road Science. An example of where we have provided a mobile laboratory is our Kaikoura facility, which supports the North Canterbury Transport Infrastructure Recovery (NCTIR). NCTIR was set- up by the government under the Hurunui/Kaikōura Earthquakes Recovery Act 2016 to repair and get the road and rail networks reopened. The Laboratory team continue to test materials and pavements during the resilience based phase.
Over the past two years Road Science has located a laboratory to both Vanuatu and Samoa to support delivery of a number of roading contracts in the Pacific. We currently have one of our mobile laboratories in Gisborne to deliver asphalt and aggregate testing on a variety of projects in the area.
