Testing Facilities



Geoscience Testing Laboratory (GTL) provides geotechnical investigation (Surface and Subsurface explorations) services to architects, developers, consultants and contractors. These investigations are performed to guide the consultants and the designers in designing the suitable type of the foundations or to provide general information regarding the subsurface conditions. The surface exploration includes geologic mapping, geophysical methods and photogrammetry. Subsurface exploration usually involves drilling of boreholes up to the required depth and collecting samples for further laboratory tests.

GTL has vast experience developing subsurface investigations and geotechnical laboratory testing programs tailored to meet our customer’s requirements. Our professional team of geotechnical engineers and geologists has diversified experience in monitoring investigations as well as classifying the materials. Site specific laboratory testing based on the end use of the data are designed to determine soil and rock parameters required for geotechnical analysis and design. The inconsistency and composition of the land requires the use of suitable drilling technique and machine. GTL’s extensive experience in the field of Geotechnical Investigations ensures to provide the right kind of the machine for the right applications.
