ENTER A NEW WORLD WITH ELS
We of Engineering & Laboratory Services (Pvt) Ltd proudly announce to all esteemed Professionals, Consultants and
Contractors involved in the Construction Industry of the establishment of a well-equipped material testing and quality
control laboratory to meet all such requirements of the construction industry in the new millennium.
Our head office and main laboratory are housed at 62/3, Neelammahara Road, Katuwawala, Boralesgamuwa, Sri Lanka.
This modern laboratory was added as a part of our continuous effort to ensure that the construction industry in Sri Lanka
would get, updated technological support, in the fields that we specialise. It is with the hope of achieving this goal that we
set up this laboratory equipped with electronic and computer controlled systems with the provisions of the Advanced
Technology. These facilities support our team of experts to perform the necessary tests on soil, concrete, asphalt and
other construction materials.All manner of field tests, including plate load tests, percolation tests, full scale slab, beam and
foundation load tests are carried out with accuracy and efficiency. The pile load tests we undertake include static, dynamic
and pile integrity tests. Furthermore, we conduct special chemical laboratory tests for water, aggregates and soil from
construction sites. A well-experienced professional team of Engineers & technicians are available to cater to all your
material, foundation and geotechnical engineering requirements. We maintain a sufficient number of machinery and an
efficient work force of over 800 employees to meet the varying challenges of the industry.
We have proved our strength by adopting appropriate and cost-effective solutions for Geotechnical Investigations and
piling work on shore and off shore, of sites with extremely difficult access conditions. We have also won the goodwill of our
esteemed clients by achieving all time targets set by them.
We speak of our Geotechnical Investigation Division with great pride, for it is equipped to provide services that encompass
every need of Geotechnical Engineers. Not only do we possess the necessary tools to handle any kind of Geotechnical
drilling on shore or off shore, we also offer total investigation solutions by handling all field tests; carried out in bore holes,
like: pressure test, pump test, permeability tests, vane shear tests in addition to SPT. Furthermore, we take on the
challenge of introducing any new test required by any consultant.
ELS has even contributed to the advancement of Geotechnical Engineering in Sri Lanka, by introducing new technologies.
The static cone penetrometer, Dynamic Load Tests, Cross Hole Sonic loging test, Small strength pile integrity test are few
examples. We own the latest models of the instruments and the latest Software with Overseas training to conduct these
ELS is experienced in supply and installing inclinometers, piezo meters, settlement plates and monitoring for major
construction projects in Sri Lanka and overseas. Ceylinco celestial Towers, southern transport development project,
Colombo Katunayake expressway project are few projects where ELS has done instrumenting and monitoring.
Such is our capability for soil, asphalt & concrete testing, and accurate, on-time reporting procedure, that our expertise
has been sought in a number of massive projects overseas, such as the Development of the Male International Airport in
the Republic of Maldives,
Rebuilding a number of Tsunami damaged Maldivian Atolls, and geotechnical investigations and soil tests for the Sri
Lankan Government bodies like Road Development Authority, Sri Lanka Ports Authority etc and a number of
Telecommunication giants in projects island wide.
