Project details

During the project to upgrade the C-15 and C-37 roads from Vilanova del Camí to Manresa, we are providing our road construction quality control services to increase the road’s capacity at various points.

We have carried out tests on soils, concrete and hot bituminous mixes. The main services provided are as follows:

  • Complete identification tests of both soils and aggregate
  • On-site soil compaction tests using the nuclear densometer method and load plates
  • Preparation of fresh concrete samples
  • Cross-hole tests to determine the structural integrity of the concrete in the piles installed
  • Tests on bituminous mixtures (preparation of specimens, apparent and maximum density, sensitivity to water and void content)
  • Trials
