Support and expertise


The Geosynthetic Centre of Excellence testing facility was launched in 2009 as a dedicated R&D laboratory, developed by Geofabrics Australasia to support the engineering community by facilitating a linkage between their projects and specialist facilities.


The Geosynthetic Centre of Excellence works in an open collaborative way with consulting engineers, regulators, universities and government agencies. Increased environmental regulation and community involvement is driving engineers to understand in greater detail the role of geosynthetics in engineering structures.


Initially focused on landfills and waste containment, the facility has adapted to provide extensive testing on our coastal products along with a broad range of other geosynthetic applications.
