At SHM Canada, we specialize in bridges, marine structures, and heavy civil engineering structures. Our structural engineering services include the conceptual and detailed design of new structures; the inspection, condition assessment, and evaluation of existing structures; and the repair, restoration, and strengthening of structures through the application of conventional repair methods as well as innovative technologies such as fiber reinforced polymers (FRP).
We use innovative methods to achieve greater cost efficiency, quality, and safety in our inspection services. For example, we use rope access technology to access and inspect elevated structures and hard-to-reach areas such as the undersides of bridge decks; diving and underwater video cameras for underwater inspections; and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones) to visually inspect other areas that are difficult to access. SHM Canada owns certified UAV equipment and our inspectors are licensed to operate them under Transport Canada regulations.
