Lincs Laboratory is a multi-disciplinary group which provides a comprehensive range of soils and materials testing, data capture and consultancy services to the construction and associated industries.
The Laboratory was first established in 1965 as a service unit for Lindsey County Council’s Highways Department. Following Local Government re-organisation in 1974, the Laboratory became part of Lincolnshire County Council’s Development Department.
The laboratory has grown and expanded the range of services provided alongside the growth in demand for quality assurance and data capture services for construction projects. We have a turnover of around £2m and employ some 43 Engineers, Technicians and Support Staff as well as a number of Part Time Traffic Data Enumerators.
In addition to serving the requirements of our parent body, Lincolnshire County Council, the laboratory undertakes work on a commercial basis for a wide range of clients throughout the UK. These include other Local Authorities, Designers, Materials Suppliers and Contractors. Examples of commissions undertaken include Deflectograph Surveys of highway networks, coring and analysis of road pavements, ground investigations and materials trials and research projects.
Our experienced team of Engineers have a national reputation and have initiated a number of techniques and initiatives, which have been adopted nationally. We were one of the first Authorities to introduce deflectograph surveys to the UK. We have also pioneered the specification of “end product testing” techniques for sub-bases and bituminous materials using equipment such as the PRIMA Lightweight Falling Deflectometer, Dynamic Plate Tester and the Laser Texture Meter.
