Construction Quality Inspection

Once your design is complete and construction is underway, the design must be followed and that the workmanship is of a high standard to ensure 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 discovered on site that need attention, were assumed within the design, are an unusual arrangement, or are critical to the design’s success. In these cases, a site inspection by a structural engineer is an effective way to minimise disruption and ensure quality.

Why choose us for your building quality inspection?

We are a structural engineering practice based in Truro, offering a full range of structural engineering services, including construction and building quality inspections. Form’s team comprises highly experienced and capable engineers, technicians and support staff. We pride ourselves on our friendly and proactive approach to being responsive to our client’s requirements from the initial enquiry stage, providing advice to project completion.

We use modern structural engineering analysis and building modelling software to produce well-communicated, efficient designs. We collaborate with the client and other creative team members to develop a design that meets all requirements and needs, considering the architectural scheme and the existing site.

Our services include:

  • Structural Design.

  • Party Wall Surveys.
  • Construction Quality Inspection.

We understand the need to work closely alongside agents and architects as part of the design team during the detailed stage of any project. This approach limits delays in the preparation of potential construction/tender packages.

We also recognise the importance of:

  • Timescales for initial markups to allow the architect to move forward with the scheme.
  • Working with and having discussions/ flexibility on the approach to the engineering to allow consideration during the design process.
  • Tailoring our output to meet the need and budget of the project.
  • Clear and concise drawings and details for easy interpretation.
