Earth, Rocks and Road

Ecamricert is specialized in geotechnical checks. The experience of the laboratory to the advantage of the construction site

ECAMRICERT stands out in the testing service of the geotechnical sector, offering a complete support for controls on construction sites and roads.

It is an Authorized Laboratory by the Ministry of Infrastructures and Transport for testing on Earth and Rocks pursuant to the Circ. Min. 7618 of 08/09/2010 art. 59 of Presidential Decree n.380 / 2001.

It works closely with its customers, guaranteeing quick and certain times of intervention. It assists companies and professionals in the geotechnical characterization of rocks and earth and in quality controls for the CE marking of bituminous conglomerates, bitumens and bituminous emulsions.Thanks to the specialized mobile laboratory, it performs direct checks on the geotechnical characteristics of the materials, according to the requirements of the main C.S.A., operating on construction sites, roadworks and at the production plants of bituminous conglomerates, also through the formulation of special mix design.

It offers its services to private companies, public bodies and freelancers who need adequate technical assistance in their work.
