Coffey Testing – Melbourne’s Airport Project Team

Airport pavement maintenance is a crucial aspect of ensuring safe and efficient operations at airports. Pavements, including runways, are subjected to stress from heavy aircraft, equipment and changing weather conditions. For these pavements to maintain their longevity and strength, regular maintenance is critical in keeping these surfaces in optimal condition, ensuring the safety of passengers, crew, and cargo.

Coffey Testing – Melbourne have their own Airport Project Team, that focuses primarily on providing quality results to some of Australia’s biggest airports.

Compaction Testing at Coffey Testing – Melbourne

Coffey Testing – Melbourne’s Airport Project Team recognises the importance of compaction testing, as this ensures the integrity and stability of the Airport’s foundations.

By determining the Maximum Dry Density (MDD) alongside nuclear density of existing materials, we can provide valuable insights for project managers when it comes to creating solutions for their projects. This approach not only assures the success of the project, but also allows for crisis management to be made if any challenges were to arise further down the road.

Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) Testing

Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) Testing is one of the processes that Coffey Testing – Melbourne’s Airport Projects team utilises to truly understand the properties of soil and its bearing capacity.

DCP is usually conducted at a maximum of a 1.5m depth from the foundations, and this process serves as an integral tool for the Airports Project Team to define the soil’s properties and bearing capacity accurately.

The DCP testing methodology not only aids in determining the soil’s strength and compactivity, but it also provides important data that supports the project’s infrastructure.

In the dynamic landscape of construction and projects that are heavily based around infrastructure, stability of structure relies heavily on the characteristics of its soil foundations. Coffey Testing – Melbourne’s commitment to employing DCP testing underscores their dedication to delivering reliable and resilient solutions for Melbourne’s Airport projects.

Compressive Strength Testing and Flexural Strength Testing

Compressive Strength and Flexural Strength testing form the backbone of Coffey Testing – Melbourne’s commitment to ensuring the structural integrity of concrete in all Airport projects.

Meanwhile, flexural strength is our focus, as the operational hours of the airport are solely dependent on the reflection of the work that we get done in this short period of time and ensuring that the job is done right.

The commitment to standard procedures for larger beams, coupled with close communication with the airport and other clients, ensures a consistent and reliable testing process. Coffey Testing- Melbourne’s approach to this is further implemented through specialised transportation with heaters that are mirroring tank temperatures, exemplifying their dedication to precision and excellence.

Coffey Testing – Melbourne’s Focus on Quality Assurance

Coffey Testing – Melbourne’s Airport Projects team is committed to quality assurance, underpinned by their NATA accredited testing processes.

Due to the tight timeframes that are associated with Airport projects, the team ensures that each slab meets the stringent requirements that come with the Airport’s operational hours.

The focus on achieving the required flexural strength from 2, 3 and 4-hour beams highlights Coffey Testing Melbourne’s precision and commitment to the attention-to-detail that is necessary for a project of this nature.
