Building Check

Following a few spectacular, but also tragic, recent events, maintaining a high level of safety within halls and buildings has become an important objective. To identify risks and to avoid consequential damage and to evaluate existing damage, TÜV NORD Bauqualität GmbH & Co. KG offers the owners and operators of halls and buildings construction appraisals for relevant components within the context of a two-stage safety concept.
The prior assessments conducted to determine the operational safety of buildings demonstrate a high proportion of safety-related deficiencies with the halls and buildings.

In the past, the necessary maintenance work on structural facilities has frequently been omitted due to cost pressure and a shortage of expert personnel. In addition, the volatile nature of specific damage was underestimated. This results in high risks for building safety that not only can damage the object itself but can also pose a risk involving bodily and life-threatening injuries.

What do we do?

Following a few spectacular, but also tragic, recent events, maintaining a high level of safety within halls and buildings has become an important objective. To identify risks and to avoid consequential damage and to evaluate existing damage, TÜV NORD Bauqualität GmbH & Co. KG offers the owners and operators of halls and buildings construction appraisals for relevant components within the context of a two-stage safety concept.

Stage 1: Basic Module

  • The one-time, on-site inspection of all freely accessible areas of a hall or building conducted by one of our company experts.
  • The preparation of a general state description as well as documentation of obvious recognisable defects of structural components and their assessment according to safety-related factors, including photographic documentation.
  • The specifications of recommendations for action concerning additional measures.

Stage 2: Additional Module

  • The inspection of the static planning documentation to be submitted for comparing the static planning documentation with the current structural conditions (target-performance comparison), for identifying any additional load transfers (e.g. mobile phone, solar power, air-conditioning systems).
  • Thorough inspection of major components of the load-bearing structure based on the results of the basic module and the results of the inspection of the planning documentation.
  • Documentation of all indentified damages and object discrepancies in an inspection report with a conclusive assessment of the building's condition as well as information on specific recommendations for action.
