Opus Materials Testing Laboratory has a proud history in Fiji.

Through our local laboratories, we have provided the research and testing that has assisted the design and construction of major national infrastructure projects throughout Fiji.

Our rich history dates back to the Department of National Roads Materials Laboratory and the Fiji Roads Authority Laboratory, where we have played a vital role in the civil engineering works in Fiji. In 2015, the laboratory changed its name to Opus Materials Testing Laboratory following a merger with Opus International Consultants (Fiji) Ltd.  

We provide the expertise and laboratory tests results required to assist contractors to deliver better both quality construction, and safer public infrastructure.  We offer a wide range of soil testing services and consultation which is crucial in the construction and maintenance of roads, bridges, jetties and buildings. 

Our laboratory is well equipped in testing materials through our use of Australian, American, British and New Zealand standards and we are currently in the process of getting our laboratories accredited.
