CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS

GreatPacific incorporates materials science throughout its engineering work to provide lasting infrastructure solutions. Our materials engineering capabilities and quality management services  support proper material selection and installation for new or existing infrastructure

 

The service life of existing infrastructure can be prolonged by developing cost effective solutions for rehabilitation of corrosion-damaged structures. Our team has performed condition assessments on various types of infrastructure including bridges, parkades, dams, pipelines, marine structures, sewage treatment and industrial facilities.

 

Our in-depth knowledge of materials and corrosion science allows us to assist in managing and maintaining important assets.
