STRAAM Group offers a visual inspection service. This service involves the use of a detailed inspection and report on the state of a structure. A visual inspection is a useful addendum to a baseline study of a structure, or it can be used as a stand-alone inspection. Such a stand-alone inspection will be used to report on structural cracking, cosmetic damage, and the overall state of a structure, including commenting about ageing. Such an inspection is necessarily limited to areas of the structure that can be viewed. Our experts are well versed in structural appraisal and have experience of visual observations that have been backed by full dynamic testing of many types of structure. Structural types that can be visually inspected include, but are not limited to tall buildings, domestic buildings, chimneys, cooling towers and dams.
