Forensic Investigations

Forensic services are often utilised to access potential compliance issues between the approved structural documentation and
the built structure. But there are also many instances on older structures where structural documentation is unavailable.

We utilise both non-destructive and destructive testing methods to understand the composition of existing structures.

These methods include:

  • Ground penetrating radar (GPR) concrete scanning
  • Electromagnetic concrete scanning
  • In-situ concrete testing
  • Schmidt hammer and ultrasonic pulse velocity (UPV) testing
  • Reinforcement locating, sizing, and tensile testing
  • Structural inspections
  • Adhesion testing
  • Chloride testing
  • Carbonation testing
