Civil & Commercial Infrastructure Industry

Civil & Commercial Infrastructure Inspection & Maintenance Services

Aging civil infrastructure, such as bridges and storage tanks, is under constant threat of structural fatigue. People across Canada depend on these assets, so it’s essential to ensure their continued sound operation. MISTRAS helps civil and commercial infrastructure operators ensure their asset’s integrity through inspection, maintenance, and monitoring solutions.

Our solutions are designed to detect and protect against:

  • Corrosion
  • Fatigue
  • Cables
  • Concrete
  • Bearings
  • Composites
  • Tendons
  • Security
  • Load Limits

MISTRAS’ infrastructure solutions apply to bridges, construction projects, and commercial buildings throughout Canada.

Bridge Inspection, Maintenance, and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) Services

MISTRAS offers bridge inspection, maintenance, and structural health monitoring (SHM) services for suspension, cable stay, pre-tensioned, post-tensioned, concrete, and steel bridges. Bridge operators can’t afford extended road closures, so MISTRAS uses small, multi-disciplined inspection and maintenance teams to complete work efficiently to minimize downtime.

Our products, systems, and services include multiple non-destructive testing (NDT) inspection technologies to target most major issues related to bridge inspection and monitoring, including strain, vibration, tilt, displacement, and other variables.

MISTRAS’ rope access and diving teams have successfully completed inspection and maintenance projects on many major Canadian bridges. We also deploy unmanned systems for aerial and subsea views of assets in hard-to-reach locations, including piers, abutments, retaining walls, bulkheads, and other subsea assets, to pre-plan inspection and maintenance work before sending manned teams to execute it.

Commercial Building Inspection & Maintenance Services

Operating on building construction, remodeling, and routine inspection and maintenance projects, MISTRAS helps ensure the structural integrity of commercial buildings and infrastructure.

Environmental factors such as rain and temperature changes can lead to corrosion, leaks, and other structural integrity concerns. Canada’s cold climate also places more pressure on these large structures, increasing the likelihood of coating and concrete failure. MISTRAS inspects for these damages, and performs light maintenance services to repair them.

Our inspection services include radiographic (RT) and ground penetrating radar (GRP) inspection of concrete to provide information guidance to floor coring contractors, and several other forms of non-destructive testing (NDT).

MISTRAS’ maintenance services for commercial buildings include concrete façade repairs, and delamination, cracking, and sealant failure treatments.
