Structural Engineering Design | Structural Health Monitoring | SHM Canada Consulting Limited
Seek out SHM Canada for innovative structural engineering design, meticulous assessment, and efficient rehabilitation or repair.
At SHM Canada, we specialize in bridges, marine structures, and heavy civil engineering structures. Our structural engineering services include:
conceptual and detailed design of new structures,
inspection, condition assessment, and evaluation of existing structures, and
repair, restoration, and strengthening of existing structures.
We combine conventional repair methods with innovative technologies and materials such as fiber reinforced polymers (FRP).
We use innovative methods to achieve greater cost efficiency, quality, and safety in our inspection services. For example, we use diving and underwater video cameras for underwater inspections; rope access technology to access and inspect elevated structures and hard-to-reach areas such as the undersides of bridge decks; and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones) to visually inspect other areas that are difficult to access. SHM Canada owns certified UAV equipment and our inspectors are licensed UAV operators under Transport Canada regulations.
