Materials Testing & Assessment of Existing Structures

Often related to our structural surveys service, a comprehensive consultancy of material testing and structural performance appraisals is available.

The specification, procurement, supervision of sampling and interpretation of results data is undertaken by experienced engineers who are practical in their thinking and knowledgeable in the history of materials used in construction.

The suitability of a building for extension, remodelling or change of use is critically dependent upon the materials used in it’s original construction and the quality of the built form. Assessment of these criteria is undertaken by practicing engineers who are able to devise a dedicated programme of testing and structural appraisal. Services extend from assisting in the preparation of the initial brief, through to viability assessment and final implementation.
