Sterling’s structural assessment services help clients analyze the condition of an existing structure. Sterling conducts site inspections to uncover potential issues that could impact the performance of the structure. A visual observation and a review of the construction documents, if available, assists the engineering team in determining the performance of the building.
Structural assessment services verify whether a building meets current code requirements. Older buildings often do not meet updated code requirements, and inspections are needed to determine whether a structure is still fit for use. Sterling conducts code inspections, and can provide the client with a plan of action for getting the building to meet code requirements.
Sterling attempts to determine whether a building is structurally stable, and if any issues are discovered, we provide recommendations on how to proceed with repairs and renovation. Sterling can also recommend additional tests or inspections that may be required on the existing building to verify certain design expectations.
