James Fisher Testing Services (JFTS) has delivered a technical seminar in Malaysia with sister company Strainstall.

The seminar, hosted by technical and engineering experts from both companies was attended by representatives from the construction and infrastructure sectors across the region and offered a detailed insight into the latest technologies and methodologies in the fields of foundation testing and structural health monitoring.

The event, which took place during January, featured a speech from the Master Builders Association of Malaysia (MBAM), together with presentations from Julian Allen, technical director at JFTS, Damian Griffiths, regional monitoring solutions manager in Asia Pacific and Justin St George, senior engineer at Strainstall Singapore.

Presentations on the day covered a range of subjects including our innovative Bi-Directional Static Load test (BDSLT) capability, which offers a proven means to determine the maximum pile capacity, while also providing key indicators of the distribution of load throughout the shaft.

Speaking at the event, Julian said: “It’s great to be able to represent JFTS at this event with Strainstall and meet some delegates from across the region’s construction industries.

“Malaysia is currently the subject of a significant construction boom, with both government and the private sector investing heavily in developing the region’s infrastructure.

“As these developments take shape, there are many ways for us to help operators to maximise the lifespan of their assets and we are pleased to have the opportunity to be here today to meet stakeholders and demonstrate our capabilities.”

Following the success of the event, plans are already in place for further seminars later in the year – watch this space for more details.
