We have supported infrastructure development across the continent for decades.
Our world-class material insight has enabled our clients to build incredible facilities, innovative energy projects and awe-inspiring roads with confidence.
Here are some of the record-breaking projects we have made possible.
|YEAR:||2016 - 2020|
|SERVICE:||Construction of 12 x 1,1 Million barrel in-ground crude-oil storage tanks.|
Roadlab carried out all soils and concrete testing on site with a particular focus on the concrete. 800 cubic meters of concrete was cast each day and it was our responsibility to ensure the quality, workability and strength of all concrete sent to site while monitoring strict temperature controls on the batching temperature of the concrete.
|YEAR:||2019 – 2020|
|CLIENT:||HHO Consulting Engineers|
|SERVICE:||FWD measurements, concrete coring, and sampling|
Roadlab was appointed by HHO Consulting Engineers to assist in the testing and sampling of concrete pavement slabs within the port terminals. Data received would enable benchmarking of stiffness’s of the various layers to include in a pavement loading analysis to derive pavement-strengthening options for improved container stacking efficiency.
|YEAR:||2017 – 2020|
|CLIENT:||Department of Public Works and Roads|
|SERVICE:||Housing Development Construction|
Roadlab assisted in the construction of over 2000 housing units and performed compressive strength testing on concrete, as well as soil and gravel testing of constructed layer works and mix designs to improve the structural integrity and soundness of soil & gravel construction materials.
|YEAR:||2020 – 2021|
|CLIENT:||Redec Services (Pty)Ltd|
|SERVICE:||Concrete coring, sampling & concrete site lab services|
Roadlab was appointed by REDEC to assist in the testing of concrete silos at the Sasko mill in Malmesbury. The cores were drilled at key locations identified by the client using thermal imaging cameras fixed to drones. The drones identified hotspots indicating cracks in the concrete silos.
|YEAR:||2019 – 2020|
|SERVICE:||Assembly and material testing|
Roadlab assembled pre-cast wind turbines and tested grout injected into the joints with rapid curing grout.
|YEAR:||2019 – 2021|
|CLIENT:||Provincial Government of the Western Cape|
Roadlab assisted in the new construction of the trunk road between Hermanus (km 6.2) and Stanford (km 24.0).
