Highway Data Systems (HDS) are the digital materials testing company.

What we do

We believe that infrastructure construction is crying out for a productivity overhaul and that the best way to achieve this is through use of digital and automated technology.

Our Automated Quality Assurance (AQA) systems have won awards for health & safety, innovation and asset management. We’re proud to be leading the industry in a 21st Century approach to unlocking the value in construction quality data.

We’ve automated materials testing for asphalt, earthworks, concrete and surface treatment operations, reporting all information digitally and dynamically with easy upload into local authority pavement/asset management systems.

Benefits include longer lasting roads, better HSE, lower costs and improved asset management decision making. Get in touch to find out more!
