   Material & Architectural Consultancy

  • High strength concrete for water desalination plant in Algeria

          We provided technical consultancy on the design of high strength concrete pipes for water desalination plant. 
          This include material composition, mixing process as well as quality control methodology.


  •  Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) of constructed detail at SOTA

            In preventing failure, an FMEA was conducted at School of The Arts (SOTA, Singapore) to analyze features with potential failure.

  •  Glass Failure Investigation

            In this aspect, we have been called in to investigate numerous glass failure cases. We employ macroscopic and microscopic techniques
            in these investigations.
            - Spontaneous shattering of glass
            - Nickel Sulphide Inclusion

  •  Material Failure Investigation

            We have investigated failure of many materials in buildings including waterproofing, stone (marble, granite etc), sealant, epoxy, plaster, paint etc.
            In these investigations, we employed many techniques including petrography, scanning electron microscopy, Fourier Transform Infrared and many more.
            - Epoxy failure and debonding
            - Petrography (microscopic investigation of epoxy failure)
            - Debonded screed and waterproofing failure investigation  
             - Analysis of corroded food waste pipe

  •  Building Pathology

            Other building system defects which we have investigated include water seepage, mould growth, swimming pool staining, 
            water feature corrosion etc.
            - Investigation of paint failure on windows and parts of building
            - Diagnosis of dampness in external wall of building, including use of infrared thermography technique.
