We Strive to Drive
Structural retrofitting is a way to strengthen the structure of buildings, whether they are residential or commercial. The goal is to reduce the risk of collapse in case of an earthquake or other natural disaster.
Structural retrofitting can also be used to make a building more comfortable for its occupants. Structural retrofitting can be done on any type of building, including residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.
If a structural audit report contains non-compliances or structural distresses which are meant to be addressed then rehabilitation & retrofitting of the structure is supposed to be carried out to address these issues.
Structural rehabilitation stands for repairs to be carried out at building areas damaged during service life, whereas structural retrofitting is a complete re-strengthening exercise where necessary changes are made to the old design to serve the intended purpose of the structure. For example – grouting of plaster, concreting repairs by uniting spray & epoxy, welding of steel sections/ reinforcements, and painting are rehabilitation methods. While column jacketing, the addition of reinforcement on the beam on old structural members constitutes part of retrofitting.
Rehabilitation is a methodology-based approach where the effectiveness of a solution is dependent on application whereas retrofitting is a design + methodology-based approach. Retrofitting is commonly employed to increase the seismic resistance and addition of stories in a structure. Success both depends on the sound diagnosis, proper selection of materials, and repair techniques. These services receive relatively less attention in comparison to conventional methods of demolition of old and construction of new.
However, these structural solutions are catching the market seeing the effective economics and quick delivery of desired results. Until now, the knowledge of these techniques is limited to a few agencies where we have a promising record in diagnosis and hassle-free solutions for Masonry, RCC, and Steel structures where our solutions have not only helped the client save a large project capital but also served the planet by decreasing the potential waste of construction industry.
Our team is highly trained and experienced in all aspects of structural retrofitting. We have years of experience working with architects, contractors, and engineers to ensure that our services meet the highest standards of quality and workmanship.
We are proud to offer a service that is both affordable and effective. Our work can last as long as you need it to, so you can feel confident in the strength of your new building as well as its ability to stand up to the elements over time.
