In Hong Kong, civil
engineering projects have a high demand on testing services on construction
materials to ensure the quality of the infrastructures. There over 200 HOKLAS
accredited organizations for testing construction materials currently in Hong
Kong. These organizations provide test services for construction materials,
structural diagnosis, environmental and microbiological testing, etc.
The major types of
construction materials used in Hong Kong include concrete, repair mortar and
grout, asphalt and bitumen, soil and rock, reinforcing steel, mechanical
fixings, weld, etc. The capabilities of these materials would need to be tested
according to local and international standards by the accredited laboratories
in various stages of the projects. Records of tests and analysis in mechanical
strength, classification, petrographic, creep and shrinkage, permeability and
durability, etc. need to be provided for project reference.
This technical visit at
Fugro Technical Services Limited will begin with a brief introduction about the
laboratory and follow by laboratory tour of testing equipment.
