Structural surveys, investigations and defect resolution

Acies is experienced in carrying out surveys and inspections for a variety of uses, including:

  • structural condition assessment
  • vendor and acquisition reporting and feasibility options
  • preparation of planned preventative maintenance schedules
  • inspections for a known or suspected defect
    • including the presence of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC)
  • defect identification, including investigation, monitoring, appraisal and remedial advice.

Our work

We are often asked to carry out a visual inspection followed by an assessment of the structural issues presented. Initial findings might indicate that further, more intrusive investigations are required, such as lifting floorboards and making trial holes to check the status of foundations, wall supports and joists, particularly if there is no reliable record information available.

We are able to call on the resources within the RSK Group to carry out specialist investigations and testing as required and offer remediation advice and services such as asbestos removal. When investigating historic and heritage properties, we have access to RSK’s Geosciences and Geophysics teams, which use technology to review and monitor building conditions without intrusive damage; for larger buildings and sites, we have colleagues who use unmanned aerial vehicle (drone) equipment to survey and efficiently report on large areas. The RSK Materials and Structures experts can offer inspections and advice on all kinds of properties and structures and have worked on some of the most historic and iconic buildings in the world.
