Conditional Assessment Service

SAC’s Building condition assessment services are exceptionally thorough and include a comprehensive evaluation of the entire building, spanning from below ground level to the roof. Our systematic inspection and review process thoroughly examines the building’s structures, Foundations and systems, aiming to identify any physical deficiencies that may require repair or replacement. We provide detailed reports to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the building’s condition.

Furthermore, our standard condition assessment aims to uncover root causes of issues and assess damage extent, while customized testing services are available to predict service life and determine optimal repair solutions, including associated repair and maintenance budget estimates.

We Offer Three Levels of Assessment Services:

 Observation ReportCondition SurveyStandard Condition Assessment
Report SummaryA thorough visual assessment detailing the observed issues in the designated area(s).Detailed documentation of the problem area(s), quantifying both the precise location and the severity of visible defects and conditions.Analyzed data, comprehensive documentation of existing conditions, assessment of damage extent (if applicable), and a root cause analysis, culminating in expert repair recommendations.

CONDITION ASSESSMENT OF CONCRETE
AND STEEL STRUCTURES

We provide condition assessment for the existing and distressed structures by conducting Non Destructive test and partially destructive Testing based on International standards. Following tests shall be performed:

  • Ultra-Sonic Pulse Test
  • Re bound Hammer Test
  • Core Extraction test
  • Visual Inspection

Based on the tests results, repair methodologies will be specified on the distressed structures.
