Construction Quality Inspection

Once your design is complete and construction is underway it is important that the design is followed and workmanship is of a high quality to ensure that the structure performs as intended. That's where our construction quality inspection services come in.

For many straightforward projects undertaken by suitably experienced contractors, there is no need for a structural engineer to visit during the construction phase. However, sometimes there may be items that are discovered on site that need attention, were assumed within the design, are an unusual arrangement or that are critical to the success of the design.

In these cases, a site inspection by a structural engineer is an effective way to minimise disruption/ensure quality.
