Construction assessment

Based on 30 years of experience with in-situ condition assessment and QA/QC on construction sites, we are pleased to offer training of your staff, implement procedures and audit the production, thus improving your construction work with respect to:

  • Better concrete
  • Improved production quality
  • Risk reduction
  • Trouble shooting, if things go wrong

Implementation of a QA/QC system on the site, is not meant to disturb or annoy the production sections, but is essential to prevent problems in advance; by testing and evaluating all relevant aspects of the production cycle, from stockpile build-up to the final finishing of concrete surfaces. Pelcon has been successful in this.

  • Concrete mix design

  • Testing of hardened concrete
    • Cast cubes/cylinders
    • Core analysis, e.g. with respect to obtained microstructure and durability
  • Training of production teams
    • Finding Your Own Flaws
    • Hands-on Casting
