Heritage

We recognise that heritage buildings need to have a viable use to ensure their long-term future, and that seismic upgrading is often incorporated into renovation/alteration schemes. CSI can assist where there is a lack of drawings and where unrecorded alterations have been undertaken during the lifetime of the building. CSI can check assumptions made by designers about the subject structure.

CSI has a broad knowledge base, with licensed and qualified professionals who understand building techniques used in historic structures of all types. Using non-destructive investigation techniques where possible to minimise the impact on historic fabric.
