Construction & Technical Services

© JTK Consult

The growing size and complexity of construction projects has led to a shift towards self assurance by contractors and that of their sub-contractors and material suppliers. The construction budget is always limited and there are pressures to adopt construction materials and systems on a lowest-price basis, often without all the information required to assess long term suitability or durability.

Contractors are increasingly being expected to undertake design responsibility for various elements of the project and to deal with difficult or even conflicting requirements in specifications. A proper assessment of many of these issues requires a combination of construction materials skills and technical expertise. Contractors can benefit considerably from having access to the relevant skills on an as-needed basis from a consultancy firm independent of material suppliers.

JTK Consult Approach

JTK Consult has a unique engineering materials capability stemming from over a decade of applied materials and design consultancy in the civil engineering and building fields. Our specialist teams are led by engineers with a thorough understanding of civil and building construction. They are supported by materials scientists specializing in concrete technology, corrosion protection and other construction materials. Our parallel activity in the investigation and repair of structures provides us with a rich database of the typical problems associated with construction and, most importantly, the means of avoiding them.
