Test service users in construction and civil engineering can obtain results faster and more consistently using CETi intelligent analytics and testing database.
A powerful testing tool from CET, a provider of specialist outsourced services to the construction and infrastructure sectors, has been launched to drastically reduce the time taken to report materials test results.
CETi, an intelligent analytics and testing database, enables easy data logging, comprehensive results analysis and rapid reporting for projects requiring materials testing during the construction phase. Validated reports will be available next day and, for time sensitive projects, results can be delivered within an hour of tests concluding. When compared to traditional paperwork and reporting procedures, CETi has demonstrated significantly faster reporting, helping to keep construction and civil engineering projects on schedule.
Able to share crucial testing data with customers instantly and remotely via a secure client portal, CETi also provides a complete historical database of test results for the reference of its team of technical specialists and clients. Covering an extensive range of site and laboratory materials testing services for earthworks, asphalt, and concrete operations, CET conducts all tests in line with the latest recognised British and European standards, utilising its own UKAS-accredited mobile laboratories plus permanent facilities nationwide. With all data logged through CETi, reports are available for immediate analysis by project managers, with results available to customers at the touch of a button – often same-day and where needed within an hour of the test being completed. Reporting includes immediate failure notification, allowing clients to act faster.
Gary Corrigan, Commercial Director at CET explained: “Using the latest intuitive mobile technologies, CETi has been custom-designed to meet every need of our field and laboratory based testing teams, technical analysts and importantly, our clients. Our latest customer survey revealed that waiting for test results is a common frustration across the industry, and we have responded to this feedback through extensive research, development and now implementation of CETi. Our customers are now able to access their test results significantly quicker and can monitor multiple sites nationwide simultaneously. CETi is already helping to keep our clients’ projects on track and on budget, by verifying materials performance against specification requirements or identifying issues thus enabling construction to get underway sooner.”
A further benefit of CETi comes through reduced administration at client side, as the service also logs timesheets, samples and test records automatically for electronic sign-off. In addition to providing clients with traditional and established UKAS accrededtited test reports, CETi can also be used to produce bespoke summary reports per test or per site, in the client’s preferred format.
