Structural Steel construction provides a high quality and beautiful design with added benefits related to Life-cycle costs, accelerated construction, resilience, design flexibility, future adaptability, and sustainability. Building services piping components are mostly welded construction. This construction yields itself to a very high degree of reliability and service life, if fabricated and inspected properly.
Inspection of welds often starts a fabrication facility. In many instances the fabrication is carried out of state, and in some cases abroad. AEIS has the expertise and resources to cover most locations and we have on numerous occasions dispatched our personnel out of state and overseas. Attempts are made to use local resources, where possible, after proper vetting.
Approved shop drawings and project specifications will be sent to our inspection staff and we will monitor your project to meet code and specification requirements.
Our reports will be supported with photographs and individual piece numbers for the steel members that were inspected each day. Our staff will coordinate directly with the shop staff to perform all non-destructive testing required of the specifications and track any deficiency until corrective work is completed and acceptable.
For all welding work, verification of appropriate Welding Procedure Specifications, supporting Procedure Qualification Records, and Welder Performance Qualification Records is crucial. These documents are verified against the approved drawings and codes by our inspectors. Thereafter, all essential welding variables/ parameters are monitored. Welds that receive adequate checks prior to welding, in-process, and post welding usually exhibit minimal discontinuities in subsequent nondestructive testing.
