Structural assessment and expert diagnosis of durability are major challenges for contracting authorities.

They form the basis for considerations that guide their management policy and decision-making processes.

Structural assessment assures that the structure in its current condition, or following incidents such as fire, explosion, or earthquake, is still capable of covering its operating costs.

The durability assessment is designed to assess degradation kinematics and forecast the residual service life of a structure.

These assessments are underpinned by a thorough knowledge of the structure, its constitution and condition, and advanced scientific computing techniques that enable more realistic modeling of the behavior of structures and materials.



Cutting-Edge Expertise in Materials, Structures, and Coatings

Whether it’s concrete, metal, masonry, wood, or carbon composite materials, our experts offer:

  •  A secure and precise diagnosis on the basis of which to estimate the residual life of your structure
  • Clear answers about its condition (fault analysis and failure prediction) and its service level in terms of load-bearing capacity and fire resistance
  • Repair, reinforcement, or consolidation solutions to guarantee the safety, durability, and serviceability of structures as the basis for extending their working life span

Our Experience is Field Experience


Sixense’s expertise is based on our in-depth knowledge of historical construction techniques and the latest methods for monitoring existing buildings on-site and in the laboratory. The body of experience accumulated in analyzing and interpreting the results of our investigations allows us to adapt our assessment methods to provide the most accurate possible appraisal of the condition and behavior of structures.
