We are constantly investing in development following the latest road construction technology and research trends.

Construction Materials Testing and Research Laboratory

Our laboratory can provide a full cycle of construction and production raw materials, as well as asphalt concrete mixtures quality control and testing services.

We provide internship opportunities, as well as consultations in certain problem-solving situations.

Sustainable approach

It is our vision and desire to build sustainable and high quality road infrastructure following a life cycle analysis (LCA un LCCA), that will effectively meet the needs of the community for the lowest social, economic and environmental impact.

Development of asphalt mixtures design based on the principles of sustainability, striving for more environmentally friendly production and reduction of CO2 emissions, observing the quality requirements specified in the standards.

Development of high-strength fiberglass-reinforced asphalt concrete production technology

From 2020 to 2021 we implemented the project “Development of high-strength fiberglass-reinforced asphalt concrete production technology” (Project number: 1.2.1.1/18/A/007). The project was implemented in the field of Latvia's smart specialization strategy - "Smart materials, technologies, and engineering systems", in the sub-area - "Smart materials".

Project was done in cooperation with

VALMIERAS STIKLA ŠĶIEDRA, AS.

Project implementation time:

01.10.2020 – 30.09.2021
