Construction Product Testing

Evolusion are leading experts in the testing of construction materials and products.

 

We have considerable experience in undertaking research and development projects on walls, wall claddings, and floors of residential panellised and modular buildings, designing and testing these construction elements in a variety of configurations to meet the UK and Irish Building Regulations. We have project managed structural load-bearing fire tests, fire resistance tests, and reaction to fire tests; impact tests; weather tightness tests and more.


Our service can include an R&D phase during which the optimum specifications of wall and floor build-ups can be detailed , value engineered and, critically, fire safety engineered in such a way that during the laboratory fire tests the elements have minimal risk of failing before their target performance is achieved.


Evolusion can provide a full turnkey service of designing, building and laboratory testing walls and floors in buildings to meet your requirements, enabling you to demonstrate compliance with the requirements of Part B (Ireland) and Approved Document B (UK).

acoustic testing

Both UK and Irish Building Regulations require acoustic testing of certain building elements, in conjunction with adherence to detailing principles, to demonstrate compliance with levels of sound transfer.

Compliance with TGD E (Ireland) and Approved Document E (UK) can be very complex, particularly for multi-storey developments.

Evolusion have the experience and the expertise to provide you with the cost-effective solutions you need.
