Concrete Investigation

City Surveys & Monitoring is one of the UK’s foremost structural investigation and concrete testing firms having a capability and flexibility that is second to none in the nation’s concrete testing industry.

Our substantial range of concrete testing services includes microscopical examinations, tests to determine movement, density and permeability of concrete as well as a whole range of non-destructive concrete testing services that combine seamlessly with our other more traditional structural investigation offerings.

We have teams of project engineers and technicians operating throughout the UK from our Structures Office in the Midlands providing concrete testing services to firms ranging from large, international organisations like Sisk and Aecom to countless smaller but equally valuable clients.

A handful of recent projects include the extensive concrete testing and concrete scanning of highways structures on the Leeds Inner Ring Road for Bureau Veritas and the examination of nineteen bridges in Scotland for AMCO, to the provision of pre, during and post-pour inspections of pre-cast units for Birse Rail and assorted concrete testing services based around the refurbishment of Liverpool’s grade one listed Picton Reading Room.
