Global inspection specialist, Element Materials Technology (Element) has invested $1 million in a new laboratory in north western Saudi Arabia to provide civils and environmental testing for the NEOM new city project. The project will create a futuristic destination and community incorporating smart city technology and entirely fuelled by renewable energy.
Element’s NEOM laboratory will support the new technology and development of the planned location. Element will principally conduct civils testing, including soils, concrete and other construction materials, to support the major construction and infrastructure works taking place during the project.
It will also be the only laboratory within project boundaries to conduct environmental testing, including seawater and marine sediment; air quality; potable and wastewater analysis; stack, generator and heavy vehicle emissions monitoring; and environmental microbiology.
