Specializing in reinforced concrete performance and steel material evaluation, facade inspections, technical due diligence audits, structural surveys, life cycle costing, defect assessment, courses & trainings.


Concrete Performance and Durability

The causes of cracking in concrete at early plastic stage and in service, are different. Our experience in concrete mix design for special applications such as mass concrete, extended retardation, incorporation of steel fibers, evaluating the durability of concrete in service and recommendations to mitigate problems are our strength.  Our advisory services include how to mitigate cracking for mass concrete pours and evaluation of corrosion of reinforced concrete in service.

Building Facade Condition Audits and Investigations

Building facades deteriorate during their service life. We investigate the problems such as seepage, delamination of finishes, loosening of facade components and often find that such problems could be the result of expiring of service life, wrong detailing, poor workmanship, bi-metallic corrosion. Clients have engaged us to carry facade audits as part of maintenance requirements or trouble-shooting of defects.  We have our rope access teams and drones to supplement our inspection processes.

Specification and Repair Proposals

Many repair methods are available in the industry from structural strengthening to cathodic protection systems and we propose repair proposals based on the knowledge of the current condition and life expectancy required. Our recommendations and repair proposal often consider the remaining lifespan and economic costs needed, hence a life-cycle-cost estimate approach is useful for the Client's considerations.
