The Geofabrics Geosynthetic Research, Innovation & Development (GRID) laboratory is a specialist facility that works with clients to develop the right geosynthetic solution for each project.
Geofabrics provides world-class technical leadership and engineering support through our innovation, research, industry education, design and independent testing services.
Based in South East Queensland, the laboratory houses a selection of key geosynthetic-specific test equipment. Testing is aimed at solving the real-world problems that designers, contractors and asset owners find on their site – to ensure the right solution is adopted.
- Analysis is performed according to Australian and international test methods
- Comprehensive test reports are generated, including results, photos, graphs, test conditions and details of the apparatus used
- Research is supported by industry leading suppliers in both laboratory and field trials across America, Europe and Asia
Innovation & Education
As leaders in our industry we believe it is our role to provide technical and practical education to engineers about the use of geosynthetics in infrastructure projects.
Our team conducts real-world, technical seminars for engineers and contractors to earn CPD hours through our Geofabrics University; we also run in-house workshops for our clients and undertake lectures at universities around Australia and in New Zealand.
We are proud to support the next generation of engineers through sponsorship of PhD candidates. We aim to extend their knowledge through mentoring opportunities and through provision of access to the GRID to allow candidates to test and validate their PhD theses - in turn expanding the knowledge of our industry.
