What can you expect from Intrax Forensic & Remediation
Investigation and Reporting for Distressed Buildings
In instances of structural failure or distress due to impact, excessive loading, under-design, site conditions, or other factors, Intrax can be called in to provide expert analysis and recommendations.
Our Forensic engineers can be called into disputes between builders and occupiers in regards to poor workmanship on the builder’s behalf or poor maintenance on the occupier’s behalf.
Backed by years of experience and consultation with internal divisions such as Geotechnical, our engineers use the latest technology to deliver a timely, concise report including causes, observations, conclusions and remediation recommendations.
Fire, Storm, and Flood Damage Reports
Where a structure has been damaged by a natural disaster (ex. earthquake, flooding) or by fire the Forensic division can be called in to assess the extent of damage to a structure and provide recommendations for future action.
Building Maintenance Advice
Whether taking a verbal or written form, sometimes as part of a dilapidation report, our building advice is centered on providing clear answers to localised issues usually caused by a single problem. Additionally, this type of advice may be called upon when prevention advice is required.
Soil and Lab Testing
Drawing on the experience of our Geotechnical department, Intrax can offer a full suite of complementing soil and lab testing services to determine ground conditions of a site and reactivity of soils. Lab testing such as Moisture Contents Testing can be called on to support precise findings and recommendations.
