- Review of structural analysis and construction plans.
Review of key documents including documents on joints and connecting elements for completeness and plausibility.
Verification of supporting structure, bracing and critical areas.
Review focuses on determination of the safety level and key points of inspection and is followed by:
- On-site inspection to identify the type and general condition of the construction:
- Visual inspection of the construction to verify compliance with the structural analysis and detect visible damage, if any.
- Visual inspection of roof insulation at representative points.
- Visual inspection of reliable functioning of roof drainage.
The results are documented in a brief expert report including photo documentation and in a safety-risk estimate.
For supporting structures with simple and clear support performance not involving any danger of sudden failure or risks from load, building physics, drainage etc. which do not indicate any damage such as traces of corrosion, cracking etc., testing ends here.
If initial inspection reveals the construction to be a complex/critical one, we recommend one or several of the following detailed inspections depending on the individual stage 1 result.
