Inspect and Investigate
Our Structural Engineering report is an integral part of building claims repair, pre-purchase and reconstruction process. The report gives you information on cause of defects, repair methods, estimated cost. The report is certified by a RPEQ engineer.
We have the capacity to inspect the following:
- Single and multi-story houses
- Patios & gazebos
Inspect and Investigate services we offer:
CONCEPTUAL DESIGN DOCUMENTATION
We are capable of developing conceptual plans for a variety of projects, including Filling & Excavation (Bulk Earthworks), Erosion & Sediment Control, Stormwater Drainage (including detention/retention details), and Water Reticulation.
We are able to inspect your deck for compliance certification.
DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION DOCUMENTATION
We can provide a variety of documentation to support your development application, including Engineering Services Reports, Local Council Code Compliance Reports, RiskSmart Assessment Reports, Site Based Stormwater Quantity Management Plans, Site Based Stormwater Quality Management Plans, Integrated Water Management Reports, Overland Flow Assessment Reports, and Flood Assessment Reports.
FOOTINGS AND FOUNDATIONS
We provide inspections of footings and foundation systems during construction to certify compliance with the design and relevant building codes.
Structures can fail, crack or collapse even when there are no clear structural issues involved. In this situation, our dedicated team will approach the defect from a “ground up” perspective, investigating the soil properties to identify the cause of failure and offer remedial advice to prevent further damage to the current and surrounding structures.
We conduct field investigations, testing of foundation materials, laboratory testing of soil material and other exploratory work using a NATA accredited materials testing laboratory and our highly skilled team we are able to provide our clients with timely and accurate results.
INTERNAL THICKENING LAYOUT INSPECTIONS
Prior to concrete being poured, our team will visit your site and conduct an assessment of your raft or waffle slab excavations. This will ensure that recommendations as per footing and slab details are met.
PATIOS & GAZEBOS
Councils and Shires usually require ancillary structures to be certified by an Engineer. Not only have we developed a range of standard designs to suit a number of ancillary applications, we can also create custom designs to suit your requirements.
