The implementation of new materials and technologies plays a key-role in the development of innovative green-building solutions. However, prototype materials always have to be tested before being applied to the building design in order to make engineers understand first-hand how the prototype will perform under real-building conditions.
GBF joined forces with several laboratories specialized in construction material testing and evaluation. The main services provided are:
- Basic Materials Testing (concretes and cements, ceramis, bricks, others...) ;
- Precast Materials;
- Smart Materials (changing-phase materials, nano-technology materials, others...);
- Natural Stone and Aggregates;
- Construction Quality Control;
- Fire Resistance and Reaction;
- Thermal Performance Testing.
