Comprehensive Geotechnical Reports compiled by qualified Geotechnical Engineers are available on request.
  • Borrow pit exploration – both quantitive and/or qualitative
    Letaba Lab conduct borrow pit investigations and provide detailed full colour reports that will include the following: Layout maps, GPS co-ordinates, profiles, photos, over-burden quantities, haul distances, soil test results, and any other relevant information.
  • Asphalt and bitumen testing and mix designs
    Letaba Lab is capable of conducting a large variety of asphalt and bitumen tests.
  • Road pavement and Foundation evaluation and designs
    Letaba Lab has the expertise in the group to assist in all layerwork designs
  • Site laboratories
    We have vast experience in the establishing and running of site laboratories in South Africa, and elsewhere in Africa. We have operated site laboratories in Angola, DRC, Eritrea, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe in the past, and are eager to explore the rest of our continent.
  • Aggregate testing
    We offer a wide range of testing on aggregates used in the various disciplines of construction.
  • Sampling services
    Our staff are trained to sample according to national standards and we offer this professional service anywhere in Africa.
  • Concrete testing and mix designs
    Letaba Lab offers a wide range of concrete testing on fresh and existing concrete. The tests on fresh concrete include, but are not limited to, the concrete slump tests, making and curing of concrete cubes and the compressive strength of concrete cubes. We also offer a concrete mix design service.
    On existing concrete we offer a number of destructive and non-destructive tests. We offer a concrete coring service which can be utilized for testing or for the installation of services. We also use the latest scanning equipment and software to offer a Ferro scanning service that determines what steel reinforcing was used in existing concrete.
  • Soil and gravel testing
    Letaba Lab is an accredited Civil Engineering materials laboratory that performs soil and gravel tests for all Civil Engineering projects. These include Geotechnical investigations
