Get in touch with one of our three academic directors via email or phone and be ready to describe the problem verbally.
One of our threeĀ directors will be assigned to your job and will be a single point of contact with you throughout the project. One of the key problems in civil vibration engineering nowadays is the definition of the problem and project specification, so some effort is usually required on the part of a potential client to describe the problem in sufficient detail and send us additional information. All information that is provided to us at any stage is treated as strictly confidential, whether or not we are appointed as consultants. Once the project is sufficiently well understood by all parties involved, a quote will be sent to you together with our detailed proposal to carry out the work. To get us formally engaged you need to accept the quote and proposal by signing the quote which should be returned to the academic director running the job. This will trigger a mobilisation fee of 25% of the contract value which should be paid immediately.
Yes, in principle. We have a unique capability in the UK to perform any kind of dynamic testing of a large civil engineering structure ever described in the literature written in English. We successfully performed hundreds of in-situ dynamic tests on:
No. Normally, we do not do this considering the high cost, complexity of the facilities and fragility of the instruments. If our facilities are needed, rental is possible but the equipment is always accompanied with our personnel. Such arrangements may be considered on a case by case basis.
As quickly as in 24h, depending on the type of work needed.
One of the key advantages of using and maintaining state-of-the-art dynamic testing expertise, including hardware, software and experienced staff, is the speed which this kind of approach offers when carrying out field testing. Our typical field testing can be finished within 1-2 days on-site.
Normally our field testing reports are produced within 5 to 10 working days after the testing is finished. However, a key part of our quality assurance is analysis of the data and production of key results during the testing. Therefore, majority of our clients benefit from this approach by being able to see provisional results during or immediately after the testing, which is our key competitive advantage.
