Structural Audit

According to Government regulations, all Factories and Residential Societies are expected to undergo assessment and obtain a Structural Stability Certificate from a chartered civil engineer, every 5 years. We are the competent authority to provide such certification. We offer services including detailed inspection, assessing the strengths & weakness of the structure, conducting NDT, preparing repair / rehabilitation scheme, monitoring repair work.

Structural Audit – Why and When

The structural stability is affected by number of reasons such as Aging, Construction Quality, Exposure condition, External forces etc.

The Structural Audit is a process of assessing the present health of structure.

If the structural audits are carried out on regular intervals of @ 5 years, it helps to identify the problems in the initial stage. After structural audit, If the required repairs / Rehabilitation and preventive maintenance is carried out regularly, it substantially reduces the overall maintenance / repair cost of the structure
