Al-Kaabi Soil & Materials Testing is currently one of the leading testing authorities in Saudi Arabia for soil and construction materials with a service experience since 1980.

With high standard operations and professionalism, provides field and laboratory quality control services through the testing of soil, aggregate, concrete, asphalt, water and other construction materials. It also offers onshore geotechnical services for both the public and private sectors.

The company is listed by many credible and authoritative public and private institutions including the Ministry of Municipal & Rural Affairs, Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Defense & Aviation, Ministry of Education, Saudi ARAMCO, Saudi Electricity Co., the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu, Saudi Telecommunications Co., and many consulting companies.

The company is staffed with highly qualified engineers and technicians with strong background experience in soil and materials testing who use a wide range of testing equipment designed to American Standards (ASTM & AASHTO) and British Standards (BS).

The company conducts:

  1. Geotechnical (onshore/offshore) investigations to determine the physical, chemical and engineering properties of soil which may subsequently be incorporated in structural (onshore/offshore) designs, recommendations and remedial design solutions for weak soil and settlement.
  2. Materials Testing, Al Kaabi provides Mechanical and physical testing using the latest National and International Standards (ASTM, BS, ARAMCO, AASHTO, and other International Standards) of various building materials:
    • Field and laboratory tests on Concrete and the preparation of mix design. Undertakes site inspection and investigations, destructive and non-destructive, invasive and in-situ testing and sampling techniques to enable an accurate assessment of concrete defects and failures.
    • Aggregates, stone, soil and raw materials testing.
    • Field and laboratory tests on asphalt paving materials, monitoring of asphalt laying, trial mixes and the design of asphalt plants.
  3. Chemical Analysis of :
    • water for construction purposes, and provides methods of disinfecting potable water mains in the case of newly constructed mains which go through the experience of being removed from service for planned repair or maintenance thereby exposing the pipelines to contamination.
    • Soil
    • Aggregate
    • Concrete
  4. Geophysical studies for the near-surface lithological beds including Surface Geophysical Services (Seismic, Resistivity, GPR etc.), Borehole Seismic Investigations (Cross-hole, Down-hole), and Geophysical Well Logging Studies (ATV, OTV, Caliper, Neutron log density, Natural Gamma, resistivity logs, Vp/Vs logging etc.)
