The dynamic plate load test is used in earthworks, civil engineering, road construction and rail track construction. It is used to determine the load-bearing capacity and to assess the compaction of soils, capping, sub base and soil improvement layers.
The test method is suitable for course-grained and mixed-grained soils up to a maximum grain size of 63 mm. The test is becoming widely accepted throughout the industry for rapid assessment and is proving popular with existing and new clients.

In joint venture with Alstom, Taylor Woodrow was contracted to design and construct Phase 2 of the Nottingham Express Transit system.
The project involved extending the existing tram network south via two routes which both terminate at park and ride facilities. An additional 17km of track and 22 new trams were added to the existing network.
Taylor Woodrow project managed delivery, undertook the civil engineering design, arranged significant utility diversions, constructed the new tramway routes and extended the existing depot, and also delivered several landmark bridges within the City.
“Enverity Ltd was employed to undertake laboratory and field technician services to Taylor Woodrow during Phase 2 of the Nottingham Express Transit Project between May 2012 and February 2015. Work consisted of routine Geotechnical and concrete testing but also structural investigation as and when unexpected structures and obstacles were encountered. Throughout the duration of the project Enverity provided extra recourses often with minimal or no notice with zero impact on quality and technical knowhow, highly recommended”
