Inspection & Analysis
Critical to the development of an effective project budget or restoration program is the initial analysis of existing building or property conditions. With over 20 years of expertise in the field, our extensive knowledge of building components and their effective life cycle can prepare you for future projects, discover the source of an existing problem or provide a prioritized list of future restoration needs and their respective budgets. Structural Technologies Inc. provides thorough, in-depth and detailed analysis of existing structures, property components and designated building components with safe and non-invasive methods, allowing accurate evaluation of the existing conditions, establishing the cause of specific problems and providing cost-effective restoration or replacement requirements. As a professional consulting firm, we dedicate ourselves to finding and correcting construction issues.
Structural Technologies is fully equipped to take your building or property needs from problem identification through design and project management. Ultimately, the implementation of a restoration or replacement program is directed through written specifications and construction drawings which provide the contractor with exact and specific parameters of performance.
