Survey

Survey

The first stage of the process is to carry out a survey of the structure to establish the problem

Helifix is happy to work with surveyors, structural engineers and architects appointed by the client in order to provide a reliable and cost-effective long term solution. Either way, a thorough inspection is conducted by a Helifix trained surveyor to assess the situation and establish whether the condition is historic or still progressive. The survey is normally free of charge and is undertaken by a Helifix Area Manager or a Helifix Approved Installer.

A detailed report of the survey is added to the Helibeam Project Form (HPF) together with a diagnosis of what caused the structural faults and the best means of resolving the situation. This may involve other on-site work such as the removal of a nearby tree or the repair of leaking drains if these are seen to be causing subsidence problems.
