If historic buildings suffer damage in the course of time or if they are going to be put to a different use, it becomes necessary to carry out preliminary tests of the foundations, the ground built on, the load bearing structure and the materials. Matters of stability, geotechnics, resistance to humidity, thermal and acoustic insulation and fire safety must be checked. The LGA is also involved in the development, testing and supervision of mortar, plaster, and coating systems, stone replacement materials, preservation of natural stone and wood protection.
We have comprehensive technical facilities for:
with skilled, experienced personnel.
The LGA is thus an invaluable partner, not only for those planning the conservation of a historic building, but also for the companies carrying out the restoration, those providing the materials and the courts.
Our inspections give greater insight into construction, damage, and pollution, thus in turn leading to more security in design and planning. This comprehensive inspection helps the contractor to optimise project planning, by taking all aspects of building conservation into account.
The LGA's service extends beyond building conservation. With its wide range of expert knowledge, testing and inspections methods, the LGA can help planners, contractors, owners and the courts, with expert opinions and consultancy services.
