Why inspection?

Municipalities, provinces and the central government are usually the managers of civil constructions and therefore responsible for the state of maintenance and safe functioning of works of art. Inspections of structures, with regard to providing insight into the maintenance conditions, are mainly carried out because of control of costs. The inspectorate thus achieves improved predictability with regard to budgeting. In addition, the prevention of calamities is also an important reason to have an inspection carried out.

Inspections of steel and concrete

The experts at Normec QS use modern techniques to determine the condition of works of art. For example, corrosion based on environmental class. But also remaining coating and material thickness, cracking, carbonation depth or concrete coverage can be the subject of an inspection.

The inspection consists of a visual inspection, which is supplemented by further examination if necessary. Inspections based on NEN2767 – “Condition measurement of infrastructure” or “Guideline water-retaining structures in regional flood defences” can also be carried out by our experts.
