APECS Test House was established in 2012 by Hom Nath Adhikari. The firm came into existence when the Standards and Quality Control Authority (which was the government operated construction testing laboratory) was transformed into Bhutan Standards Bureau, thereby changing its mandate.
Mr. Adhikari, who worked for over eight years in SQCA as an engineer and later as the head of Material Testing and Research Division, submitted the proposal to establish Bhutan’s first private material testing laboratory recognizing the need for a robust lab that would fill the vacuum. The proposal was supported by the Bhutan Standards Bureau Board, and APECS was endorsed by the board on 14th March 2012.
APECS now caters to a wide range of clients both from private and government sectors. It also functions as third-party testing agency for construction product quality certification. It has a well-established laboratory and field-testing facilities to delivers quality results. It supports the governments’ aim to promote quality in construction industry through quality control and quality assurance.
