Construction Industry Services
From raw materials and construction products to buildings and infrastructure, whether new-build or redevelopment projects, at Lucideon we are experts in all things construction.
Our onsite team can measure and monitor critical parameters, ensuring buildings are safe and fit for purpose. Alternatively, we can take samples and test them in our large construction laboratory under controlled conditions; the largest commercial structural testing laboratory in the world.
Most products and materials can be tested to national and international standards (see our testing schedule here) or we can develop new testing regimes for manufacturers that have game-changing new-to-market products. Subsequently we can pursue developing new test methods into national or international standards so that products can be certified.
The main segments that we operate in are:
- Construction product manufacturers
- Offsite and modular buildings
- Facilities management
- Concrete product manufacturers
- Construction consultancy companies
Services for the construction industry include:
- Failure investigation
- Weather resistance and durability
- Validation by testing
- Building control compliance
- Materials characterisation
- Advanced materials development
- Site investigations
This is only a small fraction of the services we offer, if you don’t see what you are looking for, please contact us directly because it is likely we will be able to help you.
