Soil & Aggregate

RICI is capable of performing all quality control tests on earthworks of construction projects. RICI is fully equipped to check the suitability of fill materials with respect to project specifications and carrying out in-situ density tests. In addition RICI is capable of conducting quality control tests on aggregates used in the construction industry and concrete/asphalt batching plants

RICI can conduct following lab and site test on soil and aggregates as per ASTM and British Standards:
