Our research and development teams are our technical hub. They constantly challenge the norm and bring innovation to our industry. Whether it’s a new pavement design incorporating recycled products, or a new technology to reduce energy consumption, we are always on the lookout for ways to do better.

Our technical teams work side-by-side with our crews, learning from each other and sharing ideas. Our 30 laboratories are not just for Fulton Hogan, they offer a wide range of services to the industry.

Pavement Design

With over 85 years expertise in building roads, our teams are leading experts in pavement design. We’re always investigating ways to make pavements more sustainable, with the use of new processes and materials.

Each year, we invest significant resources in research and development. This has seen us bring new products, such as EZStreet bioblend to market, as well as incorporating the use of plastics and glass in our asphalt mixes.

We take time to fully test our pavement designs so our customers and community can be confident in their performance and safety.
