Structural Audit Systems

.

This is a non-destructive method of inspection of structures that is useful to:-

Local Authorities  

  1. Confirmation that reinforced concrete structures have been built in accordance with the approved structural drawings before issuance of occupation certificates.
  2. Carrying out of audits for confirmation of structural integrity of suspect buildings.

Developers  

  1. Confirmation that the structure as built is in accordance with the design drawings.
  2. Determine the capability of existing structures for modification.
  3. Determine the capability of existing structures for additional loading.

Architects & Engineers  

  1. Determine the capability of existing structures for modification.
  2. Determine the capacity of existing structural elements for new loading.
  3. Construction quality control tool.

Contractors  

  1. Avoid hitting ferrous materials when drilling or coring, reducing wear and tear on drill or core bits and the tool motor.
  2. Avoiding rebar hits also greatly reduces the time spent drilling, since holes are made in the right place the first time.
  3. Projects where damage to rebar is not permitted can now be undertaken.
  4. Knowledge that the supervision engineer can scan the concrete to reveal the hidden bars will make reinforcement fixers adhere to specifications.
