<h1>Establishment of the Laboratory</h1>
Geotechnical Engineering and Technology Laboratory Ltd (GETLAB) is a Limited Liability Company, established in 2014. It offers testing services for a wide range of civil engineering materials and geotechnical/ geological exploration services.
The laboratory top Management is composed of engineers registered by the Engineers Registration Board (ERB) and also Members of UIPE with a highly accomplished practising senior surveyor. We also have skilled graduate laboratory engineers, supervisors and technicians that ensure suitable delivery of our services to the satisfaction of our clientelle.
The motivation for establishing GETLAB was derived from the need to address the fundamental gaps that have been observed over time in most local and regional civil engineering laboratories and these include;
<li>Lack of strict adherence to basic quality control requirements leading to inconsistency and lack of repeatability of test results;</li>
<li>Lack of strict adherence to testing programs (time schedules) agreed with clients;</li>
<li>Inadequate communication with and update of clients on the progress of both field and laboratory operations;</li>
<li>Shortage of competent and well exposed personnel; and
Limited or no investment in the latest state of the art testing equipment and lack of contribution to research.</li>
