CATCH WARNING SIGNS BEFORE THEY HAPPEN
The shocking collapse of the Champlain Towers South in Surfside, FL has brought up the conversation of concrete, safety issues and how important it is to stay up to date with building codes. A statement from our CEO David Karins solidifies that a structural engineer is essential to the build, inspection and repair of a building to provide strong structural stability and reinforcement to the safety of the occupants. Inspections should be considered frequently as most signs can happen as early as 2-3 yeas after the initial build. The members at the International Concrete Repair Institute, Inc. (ICRI) are committed to educating the public in common concrete practices by developing technical guidelines and certification programs as well as providing general information.
Karins Engineering provides engineering services throughout the lifecycle of your building. Working along with architects, developers, contractors, property managers and owners to ensure longevity through condition assessments, project manuals, bidding assistance, and construction administration.
