Even concrete can deteriorate, negatively affecting any structure made from it

At WSP Opus Research we have extensive experience in providing independent condition assessments, maintenance and repair of concrete structures.

This type of specialist diagnosis is increasingly used as an asset management tool to assist in the planning of maintenance and expenditure. We carry out concrete durability assessment throughout New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific Islands.

Our concrete technologists are trained to operate in virtually any situation, including heights, confined spaces, waste water environments, from floating platforms or boats, and on State Highways.

They combine detailed visual inspection with specialist instrumented testing, which can establish the cause and extent of any deterioration, as well as identifying technically appropriate and cost effective options to fix it.

For structures with little or no deterioration, assessments can help inform the development of a long-term maintenance and repair strategy, including options for proactive maintenance. Deterioration modelling is used as a tool to predict the remaining life of structures.
