James Fisher Testing Services provide accurate in-situ concrete strength testing and condition assessment.
James Fisher Testing Services’ in-situ strength assessments of concrete can provide efficient evaluations of the condition of concrete.
Our concrete condition assessments enable us to effectively identify deterioration, assess structural performance and determine concrete strength.
We can conduct concrete materials testing and analyse the results to advise maintenance repairs for enhancing safety and extending the life of assets.
Our testing techniques include:
- Core sampling and compressive strength test
- Pull-off and pull-out tests
- Internal fracture tests
- Rebound hammer surveys (near surface strength)
- Ultrasonic pulse velocity (UPV) surveys
- Torrent air permeability
- Initial Surface Absorption Test (ISAT) testing
- Delamination testing (tap hammer)
- Depth of carbonation
- Identification of high alumina cement (HAC)
- Confirm the condition of concrete within structures
- Gauge remaining life of concrete
- Identify emerging problems before damage spreads
- Demonstrate due diligence
- Comply with regulatory standards
- Ensure safety
- Identify maintenance priorities and remedial actions
All our testing is completed to industry quality standards a in order to ensure quality assurance, structural integrity and compliance with regulatory guidelines. Our in-situ concrete testing complies to the following British Standards:
- BS EN 13791: Assessment of strength in structures and precast concrete components
- BS EN 12504-1: Testing concrete in structures
- BS 6089: 2010: Assessment of in-situ compressive strength in structures and precast concrete components
- BS EN 12504: Testing concrete in structures
- BS 1881: Testing Concrete
