Brisbane Laboratory Expansion

Coffey Testing are expanding our Brisbane laboratory through the addition of a new large building and expansions to the existing building.

This allows us to increase:
– Testing capacity by 30%
– Scope in cementitious testing required for stabilisation works
– Source rock testing scope

We now possess one of the most comprehensive scopes in Australia for a single laboratory.

The expansion is driven by our increased client demand for a broad scope of testing and the unique capability we possess with technical experts in aggregates, soils and concrete based in Brisbane.

The laboratory expansion will entail:
– Tripling our speciality soils and aggregate testing
– Doubling our chemical laboratory size
– Doubling our concrete laboratory
– Increased sample storage area for our clients
– Addition of a 30kw commercial solar power system (90 panels)
