“CTS have been providing Professional Laboratory Services to ourselves for a number of years, during this period we have been more than satisfied with the level of service which we have received.
All laboratory technicians attending our sites for our demanding verification and compliance testing are professional, experienced and are fully conversant with today’s demanding health and safety standards.
Laboratory reporting is clear, concise and issued in a timely fashion, result interpretation and support is of a high standard.” Andy Robinson – T R Stabilisation Ltd
“In the past 20 years we have carried out vast amounts of earthworks projects during which we outsourced testing to other companies. As a result of being unsatisfied with the services provided we looked for alternatives and began working with Construction Testing Solutions.
The service and advice we receive is first class and Construction Testing Solutions always go the extra mile, no matter how tricky ground conditions are. As well as this they are always able to provide last minute assistance if we need something turned around fast.
All the staff have excellent knowledge of the industry, and we have worked with Andy Tonge for many years. Andy has always provided the best service and advised us which testing is best suited for our scope of works.
We would highly recommend Construction Testing Solutions, this is why we continue doing business with them.” Dean Miller – TKL Earthworks Ltd
“All our site team were happy with Construction Testing Solutions service. Thanks once again.” Yonathan Hailu Bsc – Balfour Beatty
“Ballast Phoenix produce aggregates in the UK which undergo the utmost scrutiny by specifiers, we decided that we required technical expertise to gain the accreditation required for acceptance and compliance with current standards. CTS now carry out the majority of chemical and mechanical analysis for our UK operations; we have an agreed timetable for sampling, turnaround and presentation of the results; we also discuss R&D projects with their managers, several of these projects have proved invaluable in understanding performance of our aggregates.” George Overfield – Ballast Phoenix
“We have worked with Jon and Kev for many years and on many projects. They provide a very competent and reliable site service that is backed up with quick reporting of results.
That is everything you need when undertaking large earthworks projects.”

We solely use Construction testing solutions for all our earthworks testing, CBRs, Plates, NDTs, soil sampling, concrete cube testing etc. We have known Jon Hardcastle and his team for over 10 years and given the level of service and commitment we have received from them we have no intentions of using anyone else for our requirements.Dave Nottingham – G Morley Ltd
“Just a quick note to say thanks for the speedy turnaround over the last few days with regard to sample collections and the quick turnaround of results. Construction Testing Solutions have really dug us out of a hole at Harewood due to the very poor performance of certain other labs.” Ian Sneddon – I P Sneddon Geotechnical Services
“Just a quick note to reiterate how grateful we are for the assistance you’ve given us in the past few days! Without the quick turnaround we would have had a piling rig sat immobile on site, instead we managed to get it rigged and install 6 piles this afternoon. Please pass on our thanks to everyone in your team who, whilst they may consider it to be ‘just doing their job’, have really helped us out.” Tom Martin – Interserve Construction Ltd
“Overall a very professional service carried out by competent staff.” Paul Fletcher – Jakto
“CTS provided us with complete geotechnical and geochemical laboratory services for a major land reclamation and earthworks project at Glasshoughton. The nature of the project was such that fast turnaround times on testing were essential to inform material sentencing decisions and to maintain progress on site. CTS engaged early with us and consultants Aecom to develop bespoke laboratory facilities to meet the project’s requirements, which included installing new equipment for rapid analysis and completing a Demonstration of Method Acceptability to the satisfaction of the regulator. CTS then assigned an experienced site technician to see the project through from start to finish.
This was a project in which laboratory services were a key element to the efficient completion of the work. CTS fulfilled their role professionally and we enjoyed a good relationship throughout the scheme.Jonathan Atkin – Waystone
“The level of service provided is always of a high standard and always meets the stated requirements outlined prior to testing. Paul Nodder as our main point of contact has always been great in assisting with the many technical queries I have.” Richard Best – Yorwaste
“I can confidently say that working closely with the CTS project management team has been extremely easy. In my opinion, the close collaboration between ourselves and CTS has benefited both the day to day running of the earthworks testing at EMG, but has also meant that numerous other sites have continued to run smoothly in the background.”Dave Collins – Collins Earthworks Ltd
