We are recognised for research-driven development and application of novel and advanced repair and remediation techniques including cathodic protection, corrosion inhibitors, fibre composite strengthening, electrochemical osmosis and remote corrosion monitoring.
We have also contributed to the widespread acceptance of new methods of durability enhancement for reinforced concrete and steel-framed structures.
Some key examples of our skills include:
- Asset management and assessment
- Cathodic protection
- Cement chemistry
- Cladding materials
- Concrete testing and technology
- Corrosion science and engineering
- Durability evaluation and audit
- Failure analysis
- Fibre reinforced composites and strengthening
- Fired clay and stone masonry
- Forensic engineering
- Heritage structures
- Inspection and surveys
- Materials engineering
- Nuclear structures
- Polymer science
- Contract research
- Remote corrosion monitoring
- Repair and strengthening
- Stray current control
- Tribology, lubrication and wear
Our team is at the forefront of corrosion technology. Our close affiliations with key academic organisations and laboratories enables us to keep abreast of the latest developments as well as contribute to them. We are able to organise and direct specialist materials testing, putting us in an even stronger position to deliver robust solutions for unusual problems.
We strive to innovate, but pursue a careful, stepwise approach that avoids unnecessary risk. Using intelligent tools and techniques allows us to assess corrosion and other degradative processes to establish its causes. With our own numerical modelling software we are able to predict future behaviour and determine the most cost-effective and sustainable actions for optimum performance with minimum risk.
Our team is a corporate or sustaining member of key organisations such as the Institute of Corrosion, the Corrosion Prevention Association, NACE International and were the first UK-based consultant to be accepted into the International Concrete Repair Institute. We have won many awards in recognition of long-lasting solutions for enhancing the durability of the built environment.
