As the primary structural foundation for almost all construction, soil materials play an essential role in the ultimate success of a project. BS EN carry out tests specified in BS 1377 and EN ISO 17892, from necessary classification testing to chemical testing.

BS EN laboratory perform in-house and onsite testing of soil materials used for subgrades, structural fills, roadways, and dams, providing valuable information that assists design engineers in achieving sound engineering practices.
