Fugro Loadtest can provide the most comprehensive range of testing services for all types of foundations around the world; extending from full scale static loading tests using O-cell bi-directional arrangements and traditional loading techniques under computer control through to Statnamic, high strain dynamic loading and acoustic integrity tests. Fugro Loadtest also offer short and long term geotechnical and structural monitoring systems and inspection services including on-site engineering supervision and quality control and monitoring tools to verify the pertinent parameters associated with installation.
Fugro Loadtest is dedicated to promoting and establishing the Osterberg Cell® (O-cell®) as the premier method of bi-directional load testing for bored piles and other deep foundation elements. Through research and development, we have redefined the science of load testing around the world making it safer and more effective. It can be used to isolate portions of a pile for testing, or can be used to test multiple levels within the same pile. O-cells can be installed in bored piles (drilled shaft), barrettes, continuous flight auger piles (augercast, ACIP) and driven piles providing loading capabilities from 100kN to over 300MN.
