Maintain the safety and reliability of new and existing infrastructure
Infrastructure projects such as bridges and other engineering structures represent major investments in long-term economic development. Ensuring the safety and long lifespan of infrastructure projects is a critical concern for government and transport authorities, developers and contractors. Structural damage may not be detected until it progresses to an advanced stage, leading to higher repair costs or serious risks to users.
TÜV SÜD offers a full suite of civil engineering services that increases operational availability, boosts cost effectiveness and assures legal certainty of your project. We support you at every stage, from initial design to final acceptance and maintenance – including bridge maintenance and engineering structuring maintenance; with project management, materials testing, site inspection and other services.
