The type of building condition research is carried out depending on the purpose of the survey and the period of operation of the building itself. They can be scheduled and unscheduled and are held in the following cases:

  • Inspection upon completion of construction or overhaul – for compliance with the project.
  • Research before future repairs of a current nature – for the purpose of identifying damage and defects and determining future work.
  • Revision of the premises before approval for scheduled repairs of any type.
  • Review of the general condition of buildings and premises damaged as a result of accidents.
When is a construction survey required?

The main task in carrying out technical studies is to determine the general condition of the foundation, main and enclosing structures, partitions, ceilings and decorative coatings. Such a procedure is required when:

  • expiration of the period of use of buildings;
  • conducting capital, current and other repairs;
  • changes in the functional purpose of the building;
  • reconstruction or additions or superstructures of buildings;
  • emergency condition of buildings;
  • future realization or acquisition of the building.

Planned inspections are carried out once every 10 years. If the operating conditions of the building are not sufficiently safe, then this period can be shortened to 5 years (according to the current regulations).

Types of examinations:

Construction inspection allows you to correctly assess the level of future works and the amount of money invested in them. When performing it, special attention should be paid to the following types of expert works:

Analysis of building structures. It is carried out if it is necessary to determine the technical condition of the building, as well as if there is to be reconstruction or redevelopment. Thanks to it, defects can be quickly eliminated at an early stage of reconstruction works.

Determining the state of structures. Necessary for the process of preparing for the purchase or sale of an object. Provides comprehensive information about the general condition of the building, as well as the probability of repairs. Allows you to find problem areas and indicate ways to eliminate them.

Calculation of bearing capacity. It is carried out during the addition of buildings, re-planning and reconstruction. Allows you to identify possible defects that can lead to the destruction of the building.

Survey of the foundation. It is carried out when it is necessary to build a superstructure in the building, as well as when the surrounding conditions change (for example, the construction of a large factory is planned nearby). Such an examination reveals any defects of the foundation, which are subsequently eliminated by specialists, and allows you to correctly assess the bearing capacity of the structure.

Survey of foundation soils. Depending on the situation and the composition of the soil base, such a geological search can be carried out in several stages. This includes hydrogeological research and analysis of groundwater in the laboratory – carried out before the construction of buildings. The examination is carried out in order to accurately indicate the type of foundation that is being laid. In some cases, a selective investigation is possible – when you need to inspect potentially dangerous places or examine individual elements of the premises.

Georadar research. Despite the fact that the depth of research in this case is limited to a depth of 100 meters, it is indispensable for detecting voids, flooding and other soil defects. Also, with the help of georadar, a search for utility networks and communications is carried out. Research of this type is carried out for all types of construction, as it allows determining the quality of concrete structures in accordance with current regulations.

Study of strength of concrete structures. It provides for several methods of analysis, including non-destructive ones, which are used depending on the purpose of the general examination. It is used in the construction, reconstruction and operation of construction objects.
