Structural Strengthening – STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES

Structural strengthening is the process of upgrading structures to improve performance under existing loads or to increase the strength of structural members to carry additional loads. The need for structural strengthening is commonly driven by building codes, deterioration, change in use, or deficiencies caused by design and/or construction errors.

STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES offers an extensive line of products and technical services to restore or enhance the load-carrying capacity of reinforced concrete, masonry, timber and steel structures. Our products can be used stand-alone, or combined together, to solve nearly any project requirement. Our in-house team of strengthening experts collaborate with designers, contractors, and owners to develop customized solutions to help solve the most complex structural challenges.

When installing STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES’ strengthening products and systems, our repair and maintenance companies provide our clients with the reassurance that our technology solutions are being installed by experienced professionals with the highest standards for quality control and safety.
