Engineering

The foundations of any GRC project is the design and engineering of both the GRC units and the attachment to the primary structure, secondary steelwork, or steel framing system.

GRC is an extremely complex composite sharing more in common with aerospace components in regards it's performance and the strict requirements for high levels of quality control and testing. As such the design and engineering should always be carried out by degree qualified structural or civil engineer with a minimum of at least 12 months experience in working under the supervision of an experienced GRC design engineer.

It is also important that, as we recommend manufacturing is quality checked by a person impartial to the factory, all design engineering should be reviewed by a third-party engineer independent of either the manufacturer or consultants.

Providing confidence and reassurance

We can provide reviews of any engineered GRC or associated support/restraint systems to provide additional comfort and confidence the works have been carried out correctly. This can either be directly for the manufacturer or indeed acting on behalf of the specifier, buyer or client.

Our engineers are vastly experienced in working with GRC materials and all meet the engineering requirements detailed in our Specification for Ultra High Quality GRCĀ  (UHQGRC) which we believe is the benchmark for the highest levels of quality and performace in our industry

Turning the wheels globally

We work across boundaries and continents.

As well as reviewing and providing engineering reviews in English we can also receive/issue in both French and Chinese.

Additional services

As leading industry experts in GRC, we also provide research and development and UKAS accredited testing services
