Our mission is to create ways to improve the safety and sustainability of our infrastructure. We seek to create innovative yet practical solutions to keeping our urban environment healthy and reliable.
The structures that we build represent an investment in society’s future. Designing new structures using the principals of sustainability and giving new life to old structures will help us create a better future.
Structural Health Monitoring
Monitoring our structures helps us use limited financial resources to better maintain them and keep the public safe.
