Quality Control and Supervision

Our Project Management and Contract Administration experience allows us to offer quality control and supervision of site works, if required and where requested, ensuring that our clients receive the highest possible standard of application. It is widely accepted that quality control and supervision improves performance, raises standards and reduces whole life maintenance costs. It is important to highlight that often the conditions of the existing substrates, for example concrete strength or concrete contamination, have a significant effect on the service performance of repair or protection materials. We can assist you in preparing detailed contract documentation and specifications based on independent testing and assessment, to provide you with confidence in the specified system service performance.
