GEOTECHNICAL LABORATORY

Today’s context of civil engineering works require high demands in underground space usage and competent foundation system. For instance, chemical plants, airport, harbours & super high-rise buildings need valid geotechnical inputs to reveal representative ground profiles and accurate soil & rock parameters. These are essential in order to achieve economical design and timely completion of construction.

We aimed to assist our clients with the unknown behaviour of ground and eliminate uncertainties in the design process. Having qualified soil and rock testing services by well established laboratory satisfy the requirements of equipment accuracy, valid procedures and competent skill are needed in the geotechnical study of projects in Singapore, where complicated geological formation and significant variation in soil & rock parameters are expected.

The RGI Geotechnical Laboratory established by Ryobi Geotechnique International Pte Ltd is accredited by Singapore Accreditation Council (SAC) as confirming to the requirements of ISO / IEC 17025 and SAC-SINGLAS for meeting the demands for good quality soil/rock testing services in the local and regional industries.  The RGI Geotechnical Laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and experienced engineers/technicians are committed to providing the highest quality of testing services for achieving optimum solutions to client’s problems.
