Quality of Service
The Sandberg service is founded upon four factors:
- 160 years of professional excellence which underlies the practice’s determination to provide services of the highest quality using our substantial reservoir of experience
- Specialised staff and expert consultants whose professional ability and integrity is evident in every aspect of their work
- The ability to be at the forefront of our field
- Close national and international links with colleagues in universities, research organisations, advisory bodies and others
Sandberg comprises three co-ordinated areas of activities:
- Consultancy Services
- Site Services
These areas of activity are closely interwoven to provide comprehensive and relevant services to meet individual client’s requirements. This collective approach to the client’s needs and problems predominates, with each area able to call upon any of the others to help solve a particular problem. In this way, our clients can be assured of a comprehensive and thorough service.
Furthermore, within the Sandberg Group are three separate businesses of Geomaterials Research Services Ltd, Building Testing Ltd and Midland Corrosion Services Ltd.
