Ashghal deploys two mobiles testing laboratories
Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has unveiled its two mobile laboratories, as part of the quality control measures over Ashghal’s various infrastructure and building projects, the Peninsula has reported. The labs Material Research Lab (MRL) and Environmental Research Lab (ERL) are designed to work on-site, and quickly travel between the project sites in order to implement all chemical and biological tests, thus allowing flexibility in deciding on the preferred material quality. The mobile labs will conduct random checks on Ashghal’s ongoing projects to ensure compliance to best practices and international standards. As part of the inspection, Ashghal’s team will collect material samples, test them on site, and assess the performance of the contractors and the quality of their work with regards to construction materials and environment.
