Strengthening For Design Error | Structural Technologies

Premature structural failures are often a result of inadequate structural design or lack of attention to design details during construction. These types of errors can stand in the way of a facility achieving start-up or remaining operational and can equate to a significant losses.

STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES provides a full line of upgrade products and a turnkey approach  incorporating the knowledge and capabilities of our contracting companies. With our experience, constructability analysis and value engineering of the repair solution is optimized as it relates to total repair cost and achievable schedules.

Not only do we provide up-front consultation, recommendations and estimates, our goal is to provide a solution that will be installed in the field post-settlement. Our contracting companies have significant experience responding to a wide range of error-based scenarios to successfully implement construction solutions. From on-going projects which are shut down until deficiencies are corrected to full-scale building upgrades which require long term planning, our contracting crews have the ability to safely and successfully implement structural solutions to meet code or project needs.
