Structural Analysis

Faced with concrete deterioration?

Before spending thousands of dollars on concrete repair and rehabilitation, it is imperative to first understand the cause of the problem. At Construction X-ray we have the tools and the knowledge to investigate your concrete structure to help determine the cause of deterioration so you can make an informed decision as to the best course of action.

Common causes of concrete deterioration:

  • Carbonation
  • Sulphate attack
  • High chloride content
  • Alkali-silica reaction
  • Rebar corrosion
  • Honeycombing

Adding extensions or upper levels to an existing concrete structure?

Before accumulating mass to an existing building or structure, it is essential to understand the current load bearing capacity. Here at Construction X-ray we conduct detailed surveys of concrete members , providing customers with the information necessary to calculate load bearing capacity, including:

  • Compressive strength
  • Cover to reinforcement
  • Rebar sizing and distribution
  • Concrete thickness
