What our clients say
Insitutek imports, sells and services, unique geotech equipment that has proved of great benefit to those who use it. It has a particularly beneficial role to play for those compacting soil in infrastructure projects.
Insitutek is our partner overseas for our test equipment. Ask them for a presentation or training for our products. I am sure you will be satisfied. They are a reliable and very kindly partner.
I have known the team at Insitutek for over ten years. Their professionalism, positivity and enthusiasm for their work is outstanding and I am pleased to recommend them.
The ZFG 3000 is an excellent tool and should be included in any professional contractors equipment list of assets. This tool should have a similar impact on the construction industry as the laser level. The ability to accurately and reliably measure this aspect of ground condition will improve the quality of the work and remove doubt as to the progress of the project.
I bought my ZFG 3000 and on the same day less than two hours later, it had paid for itself. Using this instrument, I was able to demonstrate scientifically, repeatably and independently the quality of the work that we had completed for our client. Ending the disagreement and creating an improved working relationship. Most jobs are not as confrontational as this was however, most jobs are built to a standard. The contractor can now measure as required, to know on site, at the time of testing if this standard is being achieved.
I strongly recommend the ZFG 3000 Deflectometer to any earthmoving, civil construction contractor. Good luck with your projects.
Since hiring the LWD I have used it on numerous jobs in a wide variety of material types all over WA. The ability to give “real time” test results have worked particularly well for me as i can show my clients numerical values which gives them a direct understanding of some of the benefits using Betta Roads has brought to their road construction projects. The feedback I have been receiving over the last few months has lead me to purchase the LWD and incorporate its use as an integral part of our projects.
The Light Weight Deflectometer (LWD) was first used in 1998 by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) at the Minnesota Road Research Project. Starting in 2005 the LWD has been used by Mn/DOT as an acceptance tool for the compaction of roadbed and miscellaneous embankment and trench construction, culvert treatments and other tapered construction.
We purchased a PANDA 2 machine after using one from another laboratory. The information obtained has saved money on numerous jobs. It is reasonably priced and the after-market service has been great. Highly recommend using Insitutek.
FH is now routinely using the LWD with very good feedback and useful engineering data. The equipment is an easy to use Zorn LWD.
I would hate to go back to doing the Plate Load Test using the old method using dial gauges. It would be so time consuming, not to mention manually recording and then processing all the results.
We are using the PANDITO DCP for Level 1 site supervision, it’s very portable and we find it handy for flying into sites.
We see a huge opportunity for business to balance profits for shareholders with the well-being of people and the planet and we are actively encouraging our client base to think in a similar way.

The AGS Queensland Annual Symposium was held on 29 Nov 2022 in Brisbane. Our exhibition stand was manned by Robin Power who had conversations with many of the 160 attendees. Recent advance in geotechnical engineering, engineering geology, and testing was the theme for the Australian Geomechanics Society (AGS) Queensland Chapter Symposium. The program included:
Engineers appear to be fixated on soil bearing capacity as the fundamental soil parameter for foundation design worldwide, with the assumption that the footing will behave as a rigid body. This assumption is usually not applicable for large and multi-column foundations, and in such conditions, engineers prefer flexible analysis using numerous available software. These computer […]
