Forecasting structural health
Through our Life 52® holistic approach, we help architects, engineers, and structure owners to manage infrastructure on budget. Our material experts can assist you with making repair decisions and select construction materials with consideration of environmental factors.
At Echem, we provide long-term durability planning & predictive service life models for critical infrastructure 52 weeks a year for the remaining service life. Life 52® is an acronym for our services which include Laboratory, Inspection, Field Services, and Engineering.
How resilient are your construction materials?
Soil properties, water, temperature and humidity can all cause chemical reactions of critical components and weaken materials. We help to investigate material vulnerabilities to ensure critical components are protected from exterior elements.
Exposed metals are susceptible to deterioration. Learn how we can slow down this process. We can help reduce maintenance costs, lower safety issues and increase the overall service life of the structure.
Concrete performs differently in coastal areas versus inland locations. We can help identify the right concrete repairs appropriate for existing conditions to provide long-term durability.
Understanding root causes of masonry deterioration is imperative in determining long-term repairs necessary to prevent undesired chemical reactions from taking place.
