  Concrete is a product that needs to be controlled at the design stage.
   
  After the concrete has been placed into a structure, failure to comply with the customers specification becomes a very costly, and potentially dangerous activity, making it essential to control quality and be certain the concrete will perform as required.
Mix design and control of quality must be performed within the requirements of the relevant standards. The test facility must work to recognised standards and produce accurate and valid test data.
 

How is this achieved ?

 
Laboratory performance is measured by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (U.K.A.S.). Laboratories are required to demonstrate their management systems, procedures, testing, calibration status of equipment and production of test results meet their requirements. Once this is achieved, the test facility is granted U.K.A.S. accreditation, a Nationally recognised standard of quality.
The Concrete Company Technical Department was established during the early part of 1999. An existing building was fitted out and equipped to provide a modern test facility for the company.  
The spacious laboratory is well equipped, with the environment controlled to enable tests to be carried out within the requirements of the relevant British Standard.
The laboratory was operational by the end of 1999, achieving U.K.A.S. accreditation during July of the same year.
Concrete is a product made from many ingredients (by definition), all of which constantly vary in quality, which in turn will affect the quality of the concrete they are used to make. Test results produced by the laboratory are a constant monitoring of product performance.

Any change in quality is detected by the technical department, and any necessary action taken to maintain quality before concrete being supplied to site is put at risk.
The procedures and methods used by the Technical Department are approved, routinely assessed, and accredited by the Quality Scheme For Ready Mixed Concrete (Q.S.R.M.C.). The company achieved Q.S.R.M.C. accreditation in February 2000.
