RS Preliminary Structural Audit

Preparing your property before installation

Checking of Punch List before project installation

For this service, your property will be audited to check if items on the punch list are accomplished. This is necessary before the project implementation to make sure that there are no delays and rework.

Advantages of RS Preliminary Structural Audit

  • Provides you with an effective work schedule
  • Assures you that your property has structural integrity
  • Ensures the accuracy of supports and frames’ installation
  • Guarantees you that the flood barriers will be installed effectively

Essence of RS Preliminary Structural Audit

This engineering service is provided to ensure you that there are no delays in the project schedule. The punch list that is given to you during the RS Technical Inspection must be performed before the installation process takes place.

Smooth work implementation

The main objective of Preliminary Structural Audit is to prepare everything before installation. A good project preparation results in smooth work implementation and less project cost for contingencies.

Checking your structures are ready for installation for any obstructions that was been checked

Uses of RS Preliminary Structural Audit

    RS Preliminary Structural Audit is done so RS Engineers can:

  • Make sure that any structural components are ready for installation.
  • Ensure any obstructions are cleared before installation.

Challenges that may be avoided

One big challenge during the actual installation is the actual fitting of the flood protection barriers. If the product fails to fit your area, you will be obliged for a site modification. As a result, your project schedule will be extended and you will incur additional cost for manpower and materials.

RS Preliminary Structural Audit Procedure Details

  • 1

    Checking for ground and wall level

    Ground and wall levels are checked to ensure alignment. If proper alignment between the surface and the flood barrier is achieved, possible leaks can be avoided and floodwater will not enter your property.

  • 2

    Checking mounting walls for structural integrity and cracks

    This is to ensure that the mounting wall of your property is reliable and can withstand the flood load. Checking this can also give you a guarantee that the wall can hold the flood barrier firmly.

  • 3

    Checking any obstruction before flood barrier installation

    Your property must be free from any obstruction and embedments that may cause disturbance to the installation of the flood barrier. These obstructions must be removed or rectified to ensure the perfect fit of the products and avoid any leakage.

  • 4

    Checking for the excavated area prior to ground beam installation.

    You have to be sure that the excavated area is precise for every layout. This will ensure proper fitting of the ground beam on the area.

  • 5

    Checking the reinforced walls for mounting of frames and supports.

    This is necessary because the structural strength of the reinforced walls are needed to ensure that they can resist the highest flood load possible.

FAQ

Why should we check the wall if we already checked the ground level?

When installing flood barriers, both the ground and the wall have to be checked if they are leveled. Floodwaters do not only enter from the ground but can also seep into a slit at a wall. Checking both the ground and the wall will ensure you a leakage-free flood protection.

Are there any problems if my walls have any cracks?

Yes. Of course, a crack on the wall will allow water to leak. A cracked wall may not be able to hold the support or frame of the flood barriers.

Why should we install Ground Beam?

For uneven surfaces, ground beams should be installed to “level” the ground. Floodwater is usually at its highest pressure on the base or the ground so leveling the surfaces will ensure that water will not leak into the silt on the ground.

Can I do the structural checking and audit by myself only?

Yes, if you are a professional in this field and also a structural expert. Otherwise, it would be better to get help from an expert.

My building was already designed and signed by a structural engineer. Should I still need this service?

Yes. The structural engineer who designed and signed your building only considered the building itself and not the flood barriers that will be installed in the future.
