Structural Condition Survey ( Structural Audit )

According to Government regulations, all factories and residential societies are expected to carryout Structural Condition Survey (Structural Review) at regular intervals of 3 to 5 years. We are the competent authority to provide such Structural Condition Survey (Structural Review) report. We offer services including detailed inspection, assessing the strength & weakness of the structure, conducting NDT, preparing repair / rehabilitation scheme, monitoring repair work.

We are equipped with the most advanced tools like Drone Camera (Aerial Photography), Underwater Remote Controlled Camera, Infrared Thermal Camera, Borescope; for inspection of inaccessible structures like Chimney, Bridges, Silo, OH / UG water tanks, Dams, Jetty etc.

Structural Condition Survey (Structural Audit) – Why and When

The structural stability is affected by number of reasons such as Aging, Construction Quality, Exposure condition, External forces etc.

The Structural Condition Survey is a process of assessing the present health of structure, identifying the loads & forces acting on the structure, identifying the effects of these loads and forces and finally assessing the stability & safety of the structure to withstand for its remaining life.

If the Structural Condition Survey are carried out on regular intervals of @ 5 years, it helps to identify the problems in the initial stage. After Structural Condition Survey, If the required repairs / Rehabilitation and preventive maintenance is carried out regularly, it substantially reduces the overall maintenance / repair cost of the structure. Stitch in time saves nine

The Structural Condition Survey is carried out mainly for –

  • As a statutory requirement
    • After every 5 years as per Inspector of factories
    • After 30 years at every 5 years as per Municipal Act
