In the state of Queensland, various aspects of structural design require certification from a Registered Professional Engineer Queensland (RPEQ). This certificate is issued by the engineer to ensure that the structure has been design in accordance Australian Standards and by an experienced and qualified engineer.
The certificate forms part of the building approval required by your private building certifier or local council. Unfortunately, problems sometimes arise and these certificates do not always get completed. If you are requiring Form 15 Design Certificates for your project our engineers can analyse the design and provide certification
Unfortunately, during the building process, it is common for inspection and certificate to be lost or forgotten with council having no record. Private building certifiers assist in the post certification process, but forensic engineering is required to seek structural certification certificates.
Using technologies such as level surveys, bore scopes, ground penetrating radar, electronic pulse scanning, thermal imaging and refraction testing we can provide certificates. We can issue Form 16 or adequacy certificates for re-roofing tie down, waterproofing, retaining walls, footings, slabs, framing, trusses, windows, glazing just to name a few. We can also provide certification for public structures such as signs, awnings, pier, ramps, stairs, bridge, walkways and railings.
If you've had insurance works done for subsidence, landslip or slides, you'll need a Certificate of Structural Adequacy. Our qualified structural engineers will inspect the site, and if the works are done correctly, issue a certificate thatdetails the cause and extent of structural damage. We will also list the he repairs carried out and, most importantly, a statement confirming that the affected part of the property is structurally sound.
