Trilab would like to thank its clients for their understanding in what can only be described as a landmark year; a new NATA accredited laboratory was opened in Perth, the Brisbane laboratory was relocated to a purpose designed facility of significant size, close to $1 million was invested in new equipment, and the workforce significantly expanded.
With the increased capabilities of the new laboratories, commencement times for most projects are down to one-to-two weeks.
Trilab has acquired a Hoek Rock Triaxial 83mm that is envisaged to be in service within the next few weeks, post trials to aid in the classification of rock strength parameters.
Trilab has also increased capabilities with the purchase of two new shear boxes to aid the design and long term operation of various projects. This takes Trilab’s total to thirteen shear boxes.
“With an eighty-eight per cent increase in staff numbers as compared to the same time last year, Trilab is positioned to service the civil engineering industry in a manner not seen before. The company is committed to improving the skill base of the staff which will ensure the company is able to continue to deliver highly accurate and reliable test results. All of the laboratory staff have either completed or are completing external training (endorsed under the Australian Qualifications Framework) that is relevant to the work that they undertake at Trilab.” said Gavin Hamilton, Chairman of Trilab.
