New Concrete Testing squad for convenient on-site fresh concrete test | SURFACES REPORTER Material news

In a move towards simplifying the on-site concrete testing process, Godrej & Boyce, has taken a unique initiative- – the Concrete Testing Squad to provide its customers with convenient on-site fresh concrete test trials. A report by SURFACES REPORTER.

Simplifying the testing process

The flagship company of the Godrej Group has announced that the initiative by its business Godrej Construction eliminates the tedious process of testing and organizes a structured experience for its esteemed customers.


Scheduling and conducting concrete mix trials in the Central QA laboratory was challenging due to multiple trials conducted every day which eventually caused a delay in concrete mix design approval and further process of order finalization. Project Site Execution team of customers were required to spend a considerable amount of time in witnessing such trials in the laboratory keeping aside the site execution priorities, making the entire process cumbersome and tedious for the customer.

According to the statement by the brand, the Concrete Testing Squad Van is well-equipped with a laboratory concrete mixer, microwave oven, electronic weighing balance, workability measurement equipment, cube moulds and raw materials required to conduct trials.

Benefits of On-site Tests

On-site quality testing accelerates the concrete mix design approval process by providing testing reports at the customer’s doorstep for faster turnaround and smoother project execution. Hence the initiative would provide an opportunity for Project Management Consultants, Contractors, Developers, and other stakeholders to be a part of the testing process and instantly view fresh concrete testing results.

Commenting on the launch of the concrete testing squad, Abhijeet Gawde, Head of Business Development & Marketing,Godrej Construction said, "We are happy to announce the launch of Concrete Testing Squad service that will ease the entire process of fresh concrete testing by conducting trials for pre-approval of concrete mix designs at the customer's site location. This is yet another customer-centric innovation from Godrej Construction undertaken to ease the pain points of convenience and assurance of quality for them. With this launch, we are looking forward to providing convenience for our customer's execution teams to witness the fresh trials on-site as well as the continuance of the project execution work."

Godrej Construction has always been a pioneer in the field of sustainable construction. Recently, the firm has recycled over 25,000 metric tonnes of concrete debris by implementing circular economy principles in their construction materials line of business, while their Ready-Mix Concrete (RMC) plant, Recycled Concrete Materials (RCM) plant and common areas of Godrej IT Park building in Mumbai are now powered by 100% renewable energy.
