Coffey Testing Opens NEW Cairns Laboratory to Service Far Northern Queensland

Coffey Testing’s new laboratory located in Cairns, is now fully NATA accredited and operational.

The laboratory will be able to service the areas of Far Northern Queensland such as Burketown and Weipa in the west down to Townsville in the south and already doing some work on Yam Island and in the Torres Strait in the North.

Our Coffey Testing team can facilitate testing such as soil, aggregate and concrete testing for a range of projects within the renewable, mining, subdivision sectors, as well as projects announced by local councils, such as road, bridge and culvert works.

Northern Queensland General Manager Sam Hill states, “Opening our Cairns laboratory has been a great win for both our staff and our clients. Far North Queensland is a beautiful part of the state, and we are looking forward to taking more projects in this area.

The decision to establish a presence in Cairns underscores Coffey Testing’s commitment to meeting the evolving needs of our clients, as the demand for our services in Cairns has been evident for some time. Our new laboratory not only enhances our operational capabilities but also enables us to extend our services seamlessly to remote regions.”

Our team in Northern Queensland are keen to continue to contribute to the growing Northern Queensland region, through education, information, and providing construction and support to local communities.
