At Protest Engineering, we adhere to the various standards set forth for performing observation and testing tasks on all projects no matter how big or small. Australian Standards and Main Roads (TRM), as well as Australian Standard 1289 are included, along with the Level 1 Certification.

Before taking on any project, our highly skilled staff must make sure all materials meet the qualifications established by Australian Standard 1289, also known as AS1289. We do this by assessing the materials used, and workmanship performed to verify structural engineering or geotechnical engineering consistency and design requirements are met.

Australian Standard 1289 was put in place to ensure quality control, requiring the assessment, observation and testing of fill and earthworks used on all projects. At Protest Engineering, we have mobile testing laboratories and facilities in locations across the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Melbourne and Emerald, that allow us to reach a broader range of clients, constantly expanding our customer base.
