AS 1141, ASTM and Road Authority Methods

The foundation of WGLS was built around soil and aggregate testing. Our testing meets Australian Standard Specifications as well as State Road Authority Specifications.

Aggregate materials form the basis of a range of products. Our assessments of these aggregates can greatly influence the end quality of these products.
