Overview

Giatec offers a wide range of specialized consulting services such as concrete mixture proportioning for specific applications, durability design of concrete materials, corrosion detection, and detailed condition assessment of concrete structures. The strength of Giatec lies in its experts who have a robust understanding of the industry and can solve engineering problems using the most recent research and technological tools.

The founders of Giatec have more than 10 years of experience dealing with durability problems related to concrete materials and corrosion of reinforcement at both academic and industrial levels. Our team has conducted comprehensive and detailed condition assessment on many concrete structures such as hotels, hospitals, concrete piers and jetties, and railroad concrete ties deteriorated in exposure to harsh environments. Giatec’s unique services are supported by the vast knowledge of our experts specialized in various disciplines from civil engineering, materials science, electrochemistry, and corrosion engineering. Giatec has also developed high tech devices for concrete quality control and accurate detection and assessment of damages in concrete structure. The solutions that we provide, therefore, address the cause of the problems rather than fixing the symptoms temporarily.

Our proprietary specialized services include obtaining various parameters onsite, performing laboratory tests and then analyzing them using our advanced algorithms in order to determine accurately the ‘rate of corrosion’. The rate of corrosion in the reinforcement is the most important parameter in evaluating the service life of a concrete structure. We provide the client with the true state of the structure and rate of the progress of damages in order to make a informed decision confidently about the most cost-effective immediate and long-term repair solutions and mitigation strategies.
