As consulting engineers, engineering inspections are a major component of our range of engineering services. Engineering inspections must be carried out to maintain the quality of construction in new developments and ensure that existing buildings are maintained in a safe condition.
Why do I need an engineering inspection?
For the majority of development type projects, periodic engineering inspections are required. The inspections ensure that a project is technically sound and that all design specifications have been adhered to.
For example, before construction can begin to determine the existing building’s structural integrity, structural engineers are required to inspect it. A technically sound building is economical in the long run avoiding expensive maintenance costs, but most importantly, safe for the occupants.
It is no surprise, therefore, that councils require engineering inspections and certification for all construction phases. Approvals for Council development may also be subjected to critical stage engineering inspections for the adjoining buildings, council property or new development. When a building is found to be unsafe, compulsory engineering inspections are ordered.
Engineering inspections include:
- Bridge inspections
- Critical stage inspections
- Dilapidation inspections
- Pool inspections
- Pre-purchase inspections
- Stormwater inspections
- Structural inspections
- Structural adequacy inspections
