With over 400 geotechnical studies carried out each year, and a qualified staff of two hundred, AGTS has made its mark in its field in Africa. From the countries where it is based, AGTS covers some eighteen African countries.
From housing construction to wind turbines, railway lines, airports and factories, we work in 3 phases:
- Soil survey
- Laboratory analysis of materials
- Analysis and recommendations
These geotechnical studies are supplemented by soil pollution studies.
AGTS also offers specialised tests and measurements:
- Geotechnical and geophysical soundings and tests
- Geotechnical and materials engineering
- Materials testing in specialised laboratories: soil mechanics, concrete technology, road technology, soil and materials chemistry, etc.
- Auscultation - Measurements - Instrumentation (A.M.I)
Quality is at the heart of every AGTS approach, and it is with this in mind that the company has achieved :
- ISO 9001 : 2015
- ISO 14001 : 2015
- ISO 45001 : 2018
Our commitment to CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), backed by know-how and absolute rigor, explains and justifies our many awards.
The challenges of the
Presenting builders with the framework in which they are going to carry out their developments (project environment, subsoil geology, groundwater, etc.) as well as practical, viable and cost-effective technical solutions so that the planned development can be carried out safely and at the lowest possible cost.
Using state-of-the-art equipment and several materials laboratories, AGTS is able to assess the homogeneity or heterogeneity of subsoils, determine the geo-mechanical characteristics of the formations making up the subsoil, and establish the presence of groundwater circulation.
Modelling the behaviour of future developments and recommending technical solutions to enable specific adaptations to be made are real added values in geotechnical engineering.
Construction technologies are evolving, environmental regulations are becoming more stringent, and so are the financial stakes.
To meet these challenges, AGTS is adapting its approach to offer you comprehensive, innovative and pragmatic solutions.
Multi-expertise, optimisation and decision-support tools, and a BIM approach have all enriched our approach to serving your projects.
