Failures of plant, pipework and fittings are not only annoyances, but potentially costly. Failure Investigations and forensic engineering from BSRIA allows effective remedial action to be taken and enables forward maintenance planning that can reduce the risk of future failures.
Our failure investigation experts can respond quickly to help pinpoint causes of failure in building services. We carry out independent mechanical, electrical and corrosion related failure investigations. This can include failures in boilers, pin-holing in pipes and radiators to valves, actuators, motors and controls etc.
Our recommendations help to determine the most likely cause of failure for corrective action to be put in place to prevent further problems.
Our on site test methods and laboratory facilities can reveal the underlying cause of failures i.e. manufacturing, design or installation. We can also identify whether similar components may be susceptible to failure, and recommend preventive measures.
