Construction and engineering

Surveying of buildings and land, and perhaps Norway’s fastest and most accurate analyses of asbestos samples.

Rapid determination of environmentally hazardous substances in building materials, work environment surveys, and other environmental offerings.

We know that it is urgent! We therefore offer asbestos identification with the quickest lead times in the market – as quickly as one hour after receiving the sample. Our to the point reports show the results based on best laboratory practices. We also perform identification of organic environmental toxins and heavy metals in construction materials, as well as investigations of soil, water, and sediments. We will provide you with answers about the contamination situation. We offer in addition work environment surveys and advisory services through our certified occupational hygienists.
