Our Work: Construction and Engineering
NDE (Non-Destructive Evaluation) techniques including GPR (Ground-Penetrating Radar), Covermeters, IRT (Infrared Thermography), Ultrasonics and Tomography are used in combination with targeted probes to identify construction details for load assessment calculations of Reinforced Concrete and Steel-framed buildings, and transportation infrastructure.
These techniques can also be used to locate voids in CMU and masonry walls, map reinforcement onto slabs, locate flues and post-tensioned ducts. NDE can also be useful for measuring variations in the quality of construction materials such as voiding within masonry walls, variable grout compaction within a CMU block wall, concealed corrosion and section loss of steel/cast-iron beams/columns.
Where probes are required to corroborate findings from NDE information and to document complicated connection details, measurable 3D photographs are provided in addition to drawings so the Engineer can interrogate the structure at will.
