Structural Rehabilitation & Stabilization

Structural repair and stabilization refer to reinforcing and strengthening a building or structure to ensure stability, safety, and integrity. This may be necessary when the structure has been compromised due to foundation settlement, seismic activity, changes in loading conditions, deterioration of materials, or poor initial construction practices. In addition to repair and stabilization, our team can provide rehabilitation services.

Structural repair and structural rehabilitation address issues and maintenance of the integrity of buildings, bridges, and other infrastructure. However, they refer to slightly different aspects of this process:

Structural Repair
Structural repair involves fixing or restoring a damaged or deteriorated structure to its original design and intended function. This can include addressing issues such as cracks, corrosion, foundation settlement, and other damage that may have occurred due to aging, environmental conditions, accidents, or poor construction practices. Structural repair aims to restore the structure to its original strength and stability.

Structural Rehabilitation
Structural rehabilitation goes beyond repair by considering a structure's long-term performance and sustainability. It involves fixing the existing issues and upgrading and improving the structure's overall condition and performance. This can include measures to enhance the structure's resistance to future deterioration, improve its load-carrying capacity, and extend its service life. Structural rehabilitation often involves applying modern engineering practices, materials, and technologies to enhance the structure's durability and functionality.

While structural repair and rehabilitation involve addressing structural issues, the critical difference lies in the extent of the work and goals. Structural repair focuses on fixing immediate problems to restore the original condition, while structural rehabilitation involves more comprehensive actions to improve the structure's overall performance and longevity.

In both situations, Walbec’s structural engineering experts are here to provide proactive structural support maintenance and rehabilitation solutions or ensure no further damage to a facility occurs when an unexpected structural failure happens. In an emergency, temporarily stabilizing the structure is our top priority. Next, our in-house engineering department develops a solution and discusses repair options. Finally, our experienced and efficient installation crews work to ensure completion.
