Admaterials Technologies, an Exova company, announces that it has won a contract with construction and property development specialist, Koh Brothers, to provide earthwork testing for the Changi East Development at Changi Airport in Singapore.
As well as handling standard laboratory, grading, compaction and classification earthworks testing, Admaterials Technologies says it will also conduct plate loading, field density and swell testing. California Bearing Ratio (CBR) tests, used to determine the effectiveness of compaction on soil materials needed for the proposed road construction, are also included in the contract.
The testing will be conducted on-site at Changi Airport as well as at Exova’s specialised laboratory in Singapore.
Mr Lu Jinping, Managing Director of Admaterials Technologies said, “Changi Airport is already one of the largest transportation hubs in Southeast Asia. The Changi East Development, including the planning of Terminal 5, will vastly increase handling capacity and we’re excited to work on such a major project that will undoubtedly shape the future aviation landscape of Singapore.”
“By setting up a dedicated on-site laboratory we have been able to meet our customer needs in a flexible way, ensure we meet their high standards, deliver solutions to complex technical challenges and help create an airport of the future.”
In February 2016, Exova Group explains that it acquired a majority stake in Admaterials Technologies. Admaterials Technologies provides testing in the construction sector, as well as chemical, environmental, and mechanical testing and certification services.
