» Offsite Construction: The Relevance of Full Scale Testing
(See the 'Resources' panel on the right of this page)
Structural testing is an integral part of the modern construction industry, whether it be proving individual components or materials are fit for purpose or testing novel or existing structures on-site.
We are unique in having a purpose-built structural testing laboratory that can test structures up to three stories high. At Lucideon though, we do much more than just testing - we work with manufacturers, designers, consulting engineers, contractors and building owners to provide solutions to any structural problems.
- Walling systems
- Flooring systems
- Render/cladding systems
- Building structures
- Roofing systems
- Crowd restraints/guard rails
- Architectural ironmongery
- Raised access flooring
- Precast concrete masonry units
- Highway/motorway bridges
- Buildings and infrastructure - new and refurb projects
- Civil engineering structures.
Structural testing can be to established standards to demonstrate adequate performance or may be more customized for new products during development or for certification prior to product launch. Full size structures may require testing in a design by test situation or in the development of novel designs or to demonstrate that an existing building can continue to meet modern standards after a change of use.
We often work with clients on consultancy projects - from devising a test method for a novel building product to devising experimental programmes to support real design situations, for example, proving that a building is fit for change of use.
Our construction experts have many years of experience of working with manufacturers and structural engineers to provide quick and cost-effective solutions.
