Assessment and Inspection
The Building and Construction Authority (BCA) requires all buildings in Singapore to be inspected periodically by qualified structural engineers. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) also requires all road and rail structures to be inspected at regular intervals by qualified structural engineers. At ECAS, we have dedicated engineers to perform these inspections all over Singapore, make structural assessments of the inspected structures and submit the inspection reports to the relevant authorities. We make sure that structural defects are identified and properly rectified to maintain the structural integrity of the inspected structure. Our engineers will assess the loading and usage of the structure, identify defects, determine the severity of any deterioration and assess the surroundings to detect any aggressive environments that might affect the structure. If defects are found, our engineers will provide solutions for the repair of the structure. An effective inspection will identify defects early for rectification which can lead to cost savings by preventing costly repairs when undetected minor defects become major ones.
All our inspection engineers at ECAS are familiar with the inspection methods and techniques and experienced in evaluating the structural integrity of structures to meet the specifications and building codes and standards.
