Concrete Testing

The performance of concrete structures can change with time and the effect of various deterioration mechanisms can certainly lead to a reduction in the structure’s performance over time.

At Infrastruct, our team is very aware of the changing performance of concrete structures and we provide a range of testing and investigation services to help Engineers and Designers to categorise and assess any type of concrete structure.


Our range of testing and investigation services are used on many types of building and civil engineering structures including:


Our Concrete Testing Services Include:

1) Reinforcement Surveys
