Pipeline Condition Assessment & Analysis
STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES offers highly specialized assessment and analysis support services for concrete and steel pipelines that are designed to complement and enhance owners’ in-house inspection program.
STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES partners with owners and their engineering team to integrate with existing inhouse inspection programs. Our failure-risk based approach overlays ongoing inspections with enhanced condition assessment techniques, delivering a combination of data points used to drive risk ranking of pipe assets.
Risk-based ranking results are then used to create a prioritization plan identifying pipeline(s) or pipeline segments in need of repair, renewal or continued monitoring. This comprehensive partnering approach creates a proactive program which decreases risk and increases reliability.
