CAPO TEST FOR DETERMINATION OF COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE
Capo test is a post-installed pull-out test with ASTM Designation C-900 and Euro Standard EN 12504-3 performed to obtain a reliable estimate of in-place compressive strength of concrete. Capo test is an excellent choice for structural assessment of compressive strength of concrete where concrete cores are difficult to obtain and at places where damages to steel reinforcement can be highly critical especially in bridges with the carbonated surface layer.
CARBONATION DEPTH IN HARDENED CONCRETE
The test is used to determine carbonation depth in concrete structures that have suffered or may suffer damage or deterioration due to calcite and other alkali-carbonate products resulting from exposure to moisture and chemical attack. Presence of oxygen and moisture due to carbonation results in corrosion of embedded steel reinforcement in concrete. This test is used to detect carbonation activity at earlier stages in old concrete structures especially bridges and concrete structures exposed to chemically corrosive environments of fertilizer plants and the textile industry.
STRUCTURAL INSPECTION & STABILITY CERTIFICATION
Building Standards Limited has state-of-the-art equipment and expertise to inspect the concrete and steel structures and issue stability certification for building structures in compliance with necessary engineering and legal requirements. Our Engineers can perform structural analysis on structures in distress and perform preliminary and detailed investigations of a structure prior to rehabilitation. Building standards have an experienced team of professionals that can perform quality assurance work with required testing services after rehabilitation / retrofitting works have been performed.
STRUCTURAL AUDIT AND EVALUATION SERVICES
Structural audit and evaluation are required when the life of concrete and steel structures exceeds a certain time limit or when structures are exposed to physical damage that causes distress. It is also needed when prolonged exposure to deleterious and corrosive environment causes material deterioration resulting in a deficiency of the structure s ability to withstand existing loading. The need for structural evaluation also arises when the improved performance of the building structure is required to meet the desired functional change in the building structure. Building Standards Limited has the expertise and technical strength to meet the client requirement for improved structural performance in an economical and efficient manner.
QUALITY ASSURANCE AND QUALITY MONITORING FOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS
Building standards offer a full range of inspection and quality control services on the project site and can provide a full lab testing facility at the construction site. Our field engineers can maintain quality control during each phase of construction from excavation to final completion of services including MEP, Fire suppression & Fireproofing systems. Our quality assurance program includes full-time construction quality monitoring and construction supervision at all critical stages of construction work.
CONSTRUCTION MONITORING AND QUALITY CONTROL SERVICES
Quality monitoring can be the most critical dimension in a construction project. To ensure that the design criteria are met, an unknown condition detected and potentially costly setbacks and dangers avoided, Building standards provide a system of controls testing, and inspection procedures essential to the lifelong stability and performance of any project.
Plumbing, sanitary, water supply & sewerage works
Plumbing & Sanitation Works mainly water supply & sewerage works in new construction is most critical as all pipes and fittings are fully or partially covered by the concrete or plaster works. In the bathroom, kitchen & utility areas these services are covered by expensive tiles and similar expensive materials.
Once the water supply or sewerage pipe or sanitary fitting/fixture starts leaking in any plumbing fixtures start malfunctioning the entire area is affected with seepage resulting in peeling-off of paints and other architectural finishes. More severe cases of leakages can destroy flooring, wall finishes, outer profile, and can cause destruction of the RCC slab. Accumulation of water can have a disastrous effect on the health of building structures.
