35 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Follow the visual inspection methods used by specialists
  • Use the latest destructive and non-destructive investigation techniques when conducting a building condition survey
  • Select destructive and non-destructive testing techniques based on their strengths and limitations, and suitability to your concrete, steel, timber and masonry structures
  • Interpret building system results
  • Assess the useful life of the building systems and the whole building

As buildings age, those responsible for them must get involved with condition surveys. These individuals have to evaluate materials, conduct destructive or non-destructive tests, evaluate results and decide on the necessary actions for structural rehabilitation. This seminar explains the step-by-step procedures for conducting a condition survey of concrete, steel, timber and masonry structures, HVAC, mould, plumbing, electrical and fire safety systems.

The strengths and limitations of destructive and non-destructive techniques, along with their suitability for a variety of situations, are discussed.
