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:

Concrete Structures – Reinforcement Surveys Concrete Structures – Quality & Integrity Surveys Steel Structures – Testing Material Sampling for Analysis
Covermeter surveys Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV) testing Ultrasonic Thickness (UT) measurements Chloride content analysis
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) surveys Rebound Hammer testing Portable Hardness testing Carbonation depth testing
Half-Cell Potential surveys s’MASH Impulse Response testing Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) Cement content analysis
Linear Polarisation Resistance (LPR) measurements DOCter Impact Echo testing Sulphate content analysis
Resistivity surveys CTG2 Concrete Thickness measurement Alkali content analysis
Delamination (sounding) surveys:

  • Hammer tapping
  • Delam tool surveys
