Structural Inspections

Infrastruct is focused on providing a quality based, cost effective inspection, testing and investigation services using our best resources to fully understand the in-situ condition of structures.

Our team is highly experienced in the inspection and investigation of all type of building and civil engineering structures and we have the safety related training including, confined spaces entry, MEWP operations, abrasive wheels, manual handling and Safe Pass to carry out our Client’s requirements.

Structural Inspection of structures include:

  • Motorway and regional route bridges
  • Drinking water reservoirs
  • Liquid retaining concrete tanks
  • Multi-storey buildings
  • Single storey buildings
  • Tunnels
  • Basements
  • Industrial buildings
  • Open framed structures
  • Marine Jetties and Piers
  • Heritage structures
  • Agricultural structures

All our structural inspections are completed by a Chartered Engineer and the inspections and test results are provided in a detailed report with interpretation and AutoCAD drawings

Structural inspections are often supplemented with testing and investigations to determine the cause, extent and severity of noted defects or deterioration on structures. There are many structural testing and investigation techniques currently available to engineers to examine and rapidly assess the cause, extent and severity of structural defects and to determine the overall condition of structures.

The range of testing and investigations available to Infrastruct as part of our Structural Inspections services are as follows:
