Testconsult exhibiting at Bridges 2017
Testconsult is exhibiting at the 25th annual Bridges 2017 conference with Strainstall, at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, UK on 16 March.
The detection and repair of hidden defects in construction assets has become an area of increased focus across the construction industry, as new technologies and techniques make it possible to significantly increase the lifespan of infrastructure assets.
Testconsult's sister company Strainstall, in conjunction with the construction industry research and information association (CIRIA) and other industry leaders, has supported extensive research into hidden defect monitoring and its application to bridges. The resulting guidance offers a definitive approach to identifying and rectifying a host of defects across different structures.
The guidance concentrates on improving the design of structures to make them more accessible, developing inspection techniques to improve defect detection and explores the difficulties that come in maintaining these structures.
