For almost 20 years now, we have been providing bridge inspection and NDT services in Canada to structural steel bridges, relating to fabrication and erection of new bridges, as well as in-service fatigue inspection of existing bridges. Our inspections are carried out by technicians certified to CGSB standard 48-9712, as well as CSA W178.2. All inspections are directed by a professional engineer experienced in bridge inspection and certified as a CSA W178.2 Level 3 inspector. Not only can you rely on our field personnel for your inspection needs, but our in-house engineers also develop inspection test plans and create professional bridge inspection reports complete with comprehensive descriptions of the findings and recommendations for repair and maintenance. We use a combination of visual inspection and various non-destructive testing methods to inspect the fracture critical members, distortion induced and fatigue prone details.
