Who we are

Our Story

Our experienced team of geotechnicians undertake materials testing and associated technical services in our NATA-accredited laboratory. This includes concrete testing, aggregate testing and soil classification and testing.

Hunter Civilab also operate a modern fleet of geotechnical drill rigs capable of performing investigations to suit most site investigations for geotechnical & environmental applications.

We work with a range of industries spanning building, mining and infrastructure throughout Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, Maitland and the Upper Hunter, Central Coast, North Coast, Central Tablelands, Central NSW, New England and Northern Rivers as well as the Northern and Western Regions of Sydney.

The recent opening of our Port Macquarie office allows us better access and availability to service the Mid North and North Coast of NSW.

In 2023, Hunter Civilab celebrated its 20th year in business.

Starting life as a small, materials testing laboratory, Hunter Civilab grew slowly, expanded its testing apparatus and capabilities over many years.

In 2015 we started developing our professional services arm, building a first-class team of geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists and environmental scientists, as well as other supporting professional disciplines.

We have since reached a milestone worth noting. As we celebrate over 20 years in business, we acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our team, and we are excited to see what the future holds for Hunter Civilab.

Thank you to our customers and partners for your support over the years, and we look forward to continuing to serve you for many years to come.
