A structural asset-integrity service identifies structural damage within and carries out structural audits on any kind of structure and foundation. These services support clients to optimise their invesments in refurbishment and improvements.

Our extensive experience in this field comes from many years of providing 'ad hoc' solutions to customers in a range of facilities all around the world.
We offer a comprehensive asset-integrity service broken down into the following phases:
  1. Initial inspection and data collection
  2. Study of existing documentation
  3. Trials and testing
  4. Analysis of the pathology
  5. Proposal of solutions
  6. Budget estimate for repairs
  7. Supervision of repairs
  8. Drafting and delivery of a final report
Our specialist tools for field inspections allow us to be both timely and cost effective. These include our field inspection tool, SICE, which allows us to produce more accurate information in less time.
Our services include:
  • Structural evaluation of existing edifications, preparation of current-state and pre-diagnosis reports
  • Structural pathology studies for rehabilitation of existing buildings and structural design supervision
  • Cracks protocol; structures monitoring; and enclosures thermography

This service is aimed at public organisations, building developers, architects and building owners with a view to helping them to plan cost-effective predictive and preventive maintenance programmes, and therefore to extend the life-cycle of a facility, while complying with international standards throughout.
