The limits of building infrastructures are often tested to go higher, longer, quicker or lighter. These attributes are made possible with the aid of technologically-advanced equipment and use of high-quality construction materials. Thus, with such demands on material strength, safety
and reliability, it is imperative that quality assurance tests such as material control and verification tests are conducted to help assess the technical and economic feasibilities of building projects.
TÜV SÜD’s experts are able to test materials according to performance limits such as durability, flexibility, density, corrosion, strength etc. Such information helps engineers to select the right products and materials for their projects. This prevents risks as the materials are tested according to national and international standards. Test results is also crucial during building repairs and failure analysis processes.
Our technical know-how, accreditations and recognition in the building and construction industry allow us to understand the intricacies of building materials and their corresponding local or international standards. Common standards include ASTM, BS and SS standards etc. We are able to perform material tests on the following:
- Pavement materials
- Polymer compounds
- Building materials
- Repair materials
- Concrete admixture
Construction Quality Control
TÜV SÜD’s quality control solutions is significant in any construction projects. It helps assure stakeholders that the projects are of consistently high-level of quality and match decisions made during design and planning stages. This entails component configurations, material specifications and functional performance.
Our robust track records in construction quality control and assurance programs include active involvements
in a multitude of private and public sites such as:
- Convention halls
- Commercial and Industrial buildings
- Refineries and petrol chemical complexes
- Marine facilities
- Railway tracks
