Soils testing for construction projectsSoils testing for construction projects


EXL can provide soil testing in our laboratory to supply you with technical data for the initial design phase of your project right through to quality control testing during construction phase. Tests such as particle size distribution, compaction and plasticity can provide basic classification of the soil you are working with. We also offer field testing for compaction control with nuclear density gauges.

  • Particle size distribution¬†of soils
  • Moisture density relationship of soils (Proctor)
  • Material finer than 75 um
  • Clay and fine silt
  • Petrographic examination

"EXL Engineering provided Quality Control services on an earthfill dam in the Okanagan Valley. In addition to QC and reporting, EXL consulted on compaction methodology, concrete mix design and other technical issues. EXL's knowledge and commitment added value to the project and I look forward to working with them again."
