Our specialist consultancy services include:
We are often employed by Developers, Funds and End Users to diagnose issues with existing floors. Whether it be excessive floor cracking, deterioration of joints or surface regularity issues, we aim to diagnose and report on the possible causes and make recommendations regarding further investigations or remedial works.
Many Base Specifications do not fully consider the slab as an integral part of the overall operation / performance of the facility. A weak floor specification can lead to a multitude of issues, which can impact over the life of the slab. Working with key stakeholders, Face Consultants can review and critique existing Base Specifications or write new specifications with a focus on good practice in regards, design, construction, and material and product performance requirements.
Where a slab is suffering from suspected delamination, Face Consultants can carry out non-intrusive chain surveys to identify areas affected. Depending on the results, further investigations can be carried out to confirm if there is an issue. Following on from this, advice can be offered regarding the best remedial solution.
Face Consultants have extensive experience in providing expert witness services for dispute resolution and litigation. As practicing Surveyors and Engineers specialising solely in flooring we bring a wealth of technical knowledge as well as a broad and practical understanding of construction methods and techniques.
Where a Stakeholder is looking to take on an existing building, or a change of use is proposed, Face Consultants can review the design and condition of the floor to ensure that it meets requirements. A structural appraisal can also be carried out, following on from any necessary site investigations.
Where a slab is suffering from cracking or a record of defects is required Face Consultants can undertake a recording survey. This accurately maps the extents of any cracks or other defects which can be used as a base record for future surveys or to help assess if there is any underlying issues with the floor.
