Heathrow Lab Secures UKAS Accreditation

CET is one of the UK’s leading providers of geotechnical and materials testing services. As we continue to expand our UK network of laboratories, we are able to bring our market-leading services to an even broader range of clients and geographies.

CET already operates UKAS accredited laboratories in Kent, Leicestershire and Glasgow, with flexible scope for a satellite laboratory in West Sussex and further expansion planned in the South and North-West of England.

In February 2017, we opened a new laboratory near Heathrow, offering our full range of soils, aggregate, concrete and recycled aggregate testing services. We are pleased to announce that the new laboratory has secured UKAS accreditation for both site and laboratory testing.

Ideally located for our customers in London and the Thames Valley, the Heathrow office is located just 5 minutes from the airport and provides support for our airside activity, along with major development projects in the M3, M40 and M4 corridors.

Due to its proximity to Heathrow, we have staffed the new laboratory with airside driving and security approved technical staff; enabling us to respond quickly to any airside requirements.

UKAS accreditation is one of the cornerstones of CET’s commitment to quality and safety in the workplace. Third party assessment and validation of our services provides our customers with the assurance that all works are carried out to a recognised national standard.
