A Process with You in Mind
We believe that the first step of any evaluation involves listening to the Client's goals and constraints. Goals could be take form of service life extension requirements, aesthetic requirements, etc. Constraints, for example, could involve the need to work around a process or to stay under a certain budget.
Once the Client's goals and constraints are understood, the next step involves a thorough review of available information - it is unnecessary to collect data or gather information which already exists. With the benefit from the document review, a scope of services can be developed in consideration of the Client's goals and constraints.
3eplus' staff is experienced in conducting field testing utilizing both non-destructive and semi-destructive testing techniques. Samples are obtained in the field for laboratory testing. The nature of the discovery process is that hidden conditions may arise. 3eplus has the flexibility to redirect field efforts to evaluate and understand such hidden field conditions.
Once the field and laboratory testing is completed, the data is analyzed. The analysis of the data involves the cumulative body of field and laboratory testing data. Graphs and models could be useful toward this pursuit.
The recommendations can be presented in a written report, slide presentation and/or design documents (plans and specifications). We are not affiliated with material suppliers or contractors, and provide independent and unbiased recommendations.
Do you have a project in need of a corrosion solution that requires an independent advisor to guide you along the way? Let 3eplus get you there.
3eplus provides a broad range of corrosion, and material consulting to assess potential risks, solution viability
3e+ conducts condition and durability assessments of reinforced concrete and steel structures. We perform destructive and non-destructive testing. We have relationships with material testing laboratories to supplement our efforts. Some of the testing we rely on includes:
- Rebar location and cover
- Corrosion potential
- Steel thickness measurements
- Chloride content
- Petrographic analysis
