TECNALIA’s architects, builders, administration and building managers strengthen its position as a leading player in assessing timber structures.

The Heritage Service of Gipuzkoa Provincial Council has entrusted TECNALIA to provide advice and technical assistance on wooden structures in our heritage. TECNALIA's experience and technical capacity is key when it comes to carrying out inspections, diagnostics and calculations.

More and more users are facing the challenge of respecting their construction systems, image and structure at different levels when considering an intervention project, either by their own determination or due to the needs of the different regulations and levels of protection. 

Inspection services

TECNALIA offers inspection services at different levels depending on the needs of its customers, from preliminary technical building inspections where a general assessment is made after a visual inspection, to exhaustive inspections where standardised methods and various non-destructive tests are used to obtain information on the precise state of conservation, and to make calculations for the existing structure. 

A proper diagnosis of the structure makes it possible to apply the most appropriate intervention techniques to recover and enhance the value of our heritage.
