Insitu Test

Insitu Test was founded to transform geotechnics, earthworks and pavement construction in Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific region. We are doing this through insitu testing methods and soil stabilisation.

Our purpose is: Enabling people in civil construction to push forward with confidence.

We help you get clear insight on what’s going on below the surface so you can make better informed timely decisions using our “best of breed” insitu testing methods for geotechnics, earthworks and pavements. 

We deliver long lasting sustainable soil stabilisation solutions for soil improvement.

For our co-workers and those we support in our community, we foster an environment aimed at making the impossible possible.

Our core values are:

  • Service – being super responsive and flexible
  • Collaboration – excellent at facilitating connections within our extensive network
  • Knowledge – being knowledgeable and sharing our knowledge generously

We thrive on adding value to our clients, whether it be bringing them new business, connecting them with expertise they need or just keeping them up to date with what is happening elsewhere in their own organisation or within their industry.

Insitu Test has excellent relationships in the civil construction industry, particularly in Australia and New Zealand. Join our online community on LinkedIn and become involved in relevant geotechnical, construction, pavement, asphalt and concrete discussion groups.

Insitu Test Logo Purpose and MissionGeotechnical, Construction and Pavement Testing

Better insitu geotechnical, construction and pavement testing outcomes compared to traditional methods:

  • Faster – reduced time to test and get results (results are typically available real time so decisions can be made straight away
  • More representative – focused on measuring the fundamental design parameters in the field (comparing like with like)
  • Accurate and repeatable
  • Non destructive – overcoming damage and rectification costs and subsequent issues (think key hole surgery vs open heart surgery)
  • Without errors
    • Equipment is instrumented – data is automatically and accurately recorded
    • Results are machine produced – overcoming manual data recording, transposition or calculation errors and fictitious results
  • GPS located and time stamped – know where and when every test is done
  • Visually presented results (e.g. graphical)
  • Improved safety
  • Cost effective – efficient operation, typically one person

Our insitu testing methods are good in challenging conditions:

  • Remote locations
  • Soft, marshy or over-water ground conditions
  • Hazardous locations (e.g. Contaminated sites)
  • Confined spaces

Field testing applications include soil & site investigation, compaction control, bearing capacity, geotechnical drilling, asphalt pavement investigation, concrete pavement investigation and condition assessments for rail ballast & formations and bridge decks & structures.
