Our timber consultants and engineers are able to conduct on-site surveys of timber fasteners, connections and joints as part of our technical service offering. We have experience in conducting such surveys in both temporary and permanent structures in the following areas:
- modern and historic timber buildings, including listed buildings
- timber bridges
- telecommunication towers
- cooling tower
- timber platforms and temporary works
- underground structures
We are also able to carry out inspections on mechanical fastenings as well as glued connections. Glue identification for existing structures, integrity determinations and durability testing are a few things that we are able to do.
Surveys can vary from simple visual inspection techniques to sample extraction for further analysis, with minimal structural intervention, supported by testing in our internationally recognised laboratories.
Our technical consultants are fully qualified well acquainted with modern non-destructive inspection and testing techniques. We can also provide independent laboratory testing
for timber fasteners and connectors.
