We offer services that comprise all aspects of the diagnostic and remediation process. Our business charter is focused on adopting a collaborative approach, working closely with our clients to deliver affordable and achievable outcomes. Our range of services applicable to the entirety of a project’s life-cycle include:


  • Technical inspections
  • Condition audits
  • Focused investigations


Understanding the condition and performance of an existing asset is necessary to being able to make accurate decisions about the future of a structure. We undertake inspections of assets ranging from building facades to large industrial structures such as cooling towers.


Our inspections are tailored to our client’s specific requirements and can either be representative, targeted or comprehensive in nature. We methodically assess building components to identify possible defective/deteriorated conditions and investigate possible deterioration mechanisms to establish cause(s) and consequence(s) – thus permitting the development of practical repair and maintenance strategies formulated congruent with our client’s requirements.


Regular periodic inspections allow the asset owner to plan and budget for the long-term maintenance requirements of any given structure. Absafe’s experienced and hands-on approach to inspection work, including our ability to personally access difficult structures, provides the owner with the confidence that their maintenance requirements are informed by first-person, engineering knowledge and practical experience.


  • Comprehensive Documentation
  • Diagnostic interpretation
  • Risk identification and prioritisation


In some instances, where visual inspection suggests that deterioration is linked to underlying mechanisms, Absafe’s engineers are equipped and experienced in a range of diagnostic testing methods which are used to pin-point the root cause and develop a full appreciation for the performance and durability of the structure.


Forms of diagnostic investigation provided on a regular basis include:

  • Water leak testing – including infrared/ thermal imaging
  • Concrete testing; Strength, composition, depth of carbonation, chloride content analysis
  • ACP sampling and testing
  • Glazing analysis


  • Technical specifications
  • Tender documentation and administration
  • On-site technical guidance


After inspection and diagnosis, Absafe’s engineering team are ideally placed to specify the technical requirements of works and manage the tender process on behalf of the asset owner.


Technical Specifications form the basis of the Works Under Contract, and nominate scope, methods, materials, and quality assurance necessary to achieve performance.


Absafe engineers are experienced in managing the complete tender process; inviting suitably experienced, qualified contractors to tender, handling technical enquiries, and acting as the owners’ representative for contractual issues. Tender evaluation reports provide a clear comparison of each tender submitted, and our informed commentary on the tenderer.


Regular site inspections ensure that works conform to requirements. Absafe engineers attend and inspect, and remain engaged on a practical level. Site Visit Reports ensure that all stakeholders remain informed of the status of works. Site attendance allows Absafe engineers to provide accurate and fair assessments of payment claims.


On Practical Completion, Absafe conduct a final, comprehensive inspection of the completed works to assess the final quality and conformance of the works. Defects, damages and non-conformances are resolved prior to demobilising from site.
