Sub Base Testing

TCF can offer a full service from assisting in the advice of sub-base preparation right through to plate bearing tests prior to concrete pouring.

Utilising the latest techniques in Laser dozer levelling we are able to level areas up to 2,000 m² in a day to a tolerance of + / - 5mm.

In order to achieve the most accurate results possible it is recommended by TCF, that the sub-base to be tested should have been levelled and rolled extensively to eliminate any heaving and rutting prior to any testing.

The building should be as weather tight as possible with the ground dry to prevent misleading results. The Plate Bearing Test is then carried out on the finished sub-base.

Plate Bearing Tests are carried out in accordance with BS 5930.

Offering a wealth of in-house experience in Geotechnical Engineering and methods of ground improvement techniques we are able to offer advice on all forms of slab construction and Design.

These are mechanically sprinkled on the surface of wet concrete to improve the concrete quality and provide a high degree of abrasive resistance.
