UPIC (Previously known as Pavement Design Solutions Limited) staff have collectively over 40 years experience in,
1. Solution delivery through the application of leading-edge technology and through innovation and development where no suitable technology exists, and
2. Expert engineering consultancy to advise on, design, specify and assure leading edge solutions, and lead and support the introduction of new technology and engineering processes into engineering practice.
Due to the broad range of experiences within the staff of UPIC, we have the required technical skills to get to the heart of even the most complex issues resulting from failed infrastructure projects. Due to this the staff within UPIC have been asked a number of times to undertake the role of an Expert Witness.
