When restoring historic buildings or structural elements, our experts can assess the repair materials to determine their suitability.
Using our dedicated laboratories or onsite testing, we can analyze the durability and structural capabilities of a range of materials to verify their performance is suitable for the intended job.
Our analysis can ensure that the new material is aesthetically compatible to your existing material; is an important consideration when renovating and repairing older buildings.
Our experts can also analyze whether long-term damage occurs when the repair is subject to actions such as differential movements, imposed loadings or weathering effects.
Much of our work consists of checking that floors and walls have been stabilized against future movement and have an improved load bearing capacity for change of use projects. Components used for the repair can also be verified in terms of being fit for purpose, these include carbon fibre plates, retrofitted ties and straps.
