Technical Control of BuildingsTechnical control of construction sites, safety of persons and protection of goods, technical diagnosis, expertise in property development and civil engineering…
For several years, the Technical Control activity has been in constant progress, representing an important development pole. The interventions of APAVE's engineers are conducted on industrial premises, as well as on residential buildings and other public buildings.
These missions concern the solidity of works, the safety of persons, the functioning of technical installations, the soil foundation and shoring as well as the acoustic and thermal insulation.
The technical control on construction sites is applied throughout the whole duration of a project, beginning from the design phase in order to contribute to the prevention of conceptual technical hazards, but also during the execution phase and till the end of works.
The risk control also includes the seismic prevention and the fire safety, where APAVE offers numerous missions relevant to the safety of persons and goods and such requirements are integrated since the design phase of a building.
These missions also include the verification of lightning protection systems, the determination of zones with high explosion risks or with environmental pollution risk.
Ln addition, Apave accompanies the initiatives of conservation and protection of the environment through international certifications (LEED, BREEAM) or national ones (ARZ, BRS).
Part of the technical control missions, disabled persons accessibility is at the heart of Apave's concerns. For this reason, a special label was created to mark all buildings controlled by our engineers and that are compliant with national and/or international accessibility regulations and standards.
Apave is proud to be one of the first technical inspection offices accredited in Lebanon, classified in the 1st category, by decision #1139 of the Lebanese Ministry of Public Works.
By this accreditation, Apave ensures the implementation of the Decree #7964 making technical control an obligatory passage for the construction of a class of buildings. This step is considered to be a consolidation of the principles of the quality within the construction industry.
