Building Investigation & Testing Services

Building Investigation & Testing Services (B.I.T.S.) was formed in 1994 to provide a highly experienced and professional service in all areas of building investigation and testing.

B.I.T.S. was formed when the management bought out the assets of S.G.S. UKs building division in a management buyout. (Originally, all of the directors and staff were part of the building investigation and testing team at Fulmer Yarsley, prior to the take over of Fulmer Yarsley in 1990 by S.G.S.UK.)

Then in 2002, B.I.T.S. acquired the Plastic Pipe testing facility from ERA Technology, adding this to their testing team skills.

So how can BITS be of benefit to you?

Put simply - the Directors and staff of B.I.T.S. have over 100 years worth of professional, high quality experience in the field of building and components testing, consultancy and litigation work.

But it doesn't stop at just building components. B.I.T.S. team of experts are also experienced and skilled in dealing with testing and consulting on building systems and products as well.

B.I.T.S. also maintain very close links with a series of approved associates and skilled professionals whose expertise is relevant to the building industry, ensuring that their specialist niche knowledge is on tap and available to our clients as and when required.
