Manchester Building and Testing Laboratories were established in 1968. During that time, we have wholly specialised in problems within the building and construction industry. Our laboratories are also recommended in ‘Defects in Building’ published by HMSO.

We have carried out innumerable investigations into the identification of a variety of construction problems, produced reports for litigation, acted in court as an expert witness and carried out a whole variety of specific and unusual surveys.
