Explore the Possibilities of Pavement Longevity with Coffey Testing – Central Coast

Our Coffey Testing – Central Coast team are specialists in pavement rehabilitation and longevity.

We invite you to explore the possibilities and testing capabilities that we can provide when it comes to ensuring that the longevity, structural integrity, and safety of Australian roads are our priorities.

Coffey Testing – Central Coast’s Drilling Team

The Coffey Testing – Central Coast drilling team are experienced in helping local councils, civil contractors, and regional road programs to restore their LGA’s pavements. We aim to help provide safer roads for their communities and by doing so Coffey Testing is:

  • Significantly reducing the waste of otherwise discarded materials
  • Decreasing the impact on the environment, and
  • Minimising the cost associated with local taxpayers.

Our drilling team have strong backgrounds in construction materials testing and will be able to utilise this knowledge to undertake thorough pavement investigations for our client’s projects.

Coffey Testing’s approach to Quality Assurance

Coffey Testing is an Australian Owned organisation that has been paving the way for construction materials testing for over 60 years.

When it comes to pavement investigation, stablisation trial mix design and conformance testing, deflection monitoring, material quality testing and compaction testing across all scales of pavement projects, Coffey Testing used its NATA accredited testing methods to give our clients the results they need rather than the results that they want.

Coffey Testing and Pavement Longevity for Road Rehabilitation

Our Coffey Testing – Central Coast drilling team aims to repurpose and recycle any materials used to increase the lifespan of Australia’s roads.

Materials such as:

  • Recycled crushed concretes, suitable for road bases, and
  • Selected material zones (SMZs) and crushed glass,

Are ideal for the road rehabilitation as they are already available, cutting supplier costs and turnaround time needed for materials to be shipped.

Coffey Testing is also the only private testing laboratory network in Australia that has the WLB10S Foaming Trial Machine for bitumen modulus testing under our belts, making us the ideal company when it comes to councils wanting high quality results for their roads without dipping too far into their allocated budgets.

Striving for continued improvement in the Pavement Investigation Process

Coffey Testing is a member of AustStab, which is Australia’s #1 pavement recycling and stabilisation association. Having access to this group allows for additional knowledge on the pavement investigation industry.

From the latest breakthroughs, guideline changes, and any troubleshooting within the industry, our Coffey Testing drilling team are always looking for ways to improve their processes, cut the costs and increase the quality of testing and outcome procedures for our clients.

Coffey Testing – Rockhampton’s Commitment to the Wind Energy Sector

Wind energy is one of Australia’s main sources of renewable energy. It generates enough energy to meet 35.9% of the country’s electricity demands and 9.9% of Australia’s overall electricity supply. By 2030, wind energy is projected to share 50% of electricity generation in Australia. This is a massive opportunity for major players for those already involved or wanting to be involved in the renewable industry. 

Coffey Testing- Rockhampton are eager to share their expertise and capabilities in the Wind Energy Sector. Through their commitment to delivering exceptional results, the Rockhampton team can assist with the following testing methods. 


A geo-investigation, also known as soil testing, can allow for further insight to be gained into the ground conditions and current soil composition of the ground. This allows Project Managers to site plan with confidence and cut out the risks from the very beginning of the construction process. 

Concrete Testing and Assessments 

When it comes to the integrity of the Wind Farm, ensuring that the foundations are suitable for being built on top of, will determine the success of the overarching project, and will cut costs of project maintenance and renewal in the future.

Wind farms are typically built on a mountain or somewhere in which they are elevated from the ground. This is so that when the wind hits the turbines, they will kinetically move. It is important that not only the foundations are stable, but that the overall structure of the tower is in stable condition.

Construction Support

Coffey Testing can provide expertise on ensuring that your Wind Farm is stable and erect throughout the construction stage, ensuring that crane pads meet the design strength and design parameters. 

This is to ensure that, when cranes are erecting the different components of the Wind Farm such as the turbines, towers, gearboxes and blades are stable and kept in place, minimises risk that can be associated with unstable and dodgy construction practices.

Level 1 Supervision

Coffey Testing’s nationwide team of qualified technicians can perform Level 1 Site Supervision and Testing, which is in accordance with AS3798-2007 Guidelines on Earthworks for Commercial and Residential Developments. 

Coffey Testing’s network of Australian-wider stakeholders ensure that we have the appropriate experts on-hand to have your certification completed in a timely manner whilst reducing your construction risk exposure. When it comes to safety, Coffey Testing prioritises this.

Our desire to expand in the wind energy sector is backed by a strong track record of successful projects.
