Structural Upgrade & Strengthening Services
Making Structures Stronger
There are many drivers for increasing or restoring the structural capacity of structures, including code changes, seismic upgrade, changes in use (which increase service loads), deficiencies within the structure caused by errors in design or construction, or loss of capacity due to deterioration.
PULLMAN, a licensee of STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES’ products and technical support services, provides industry-leading services – utilizing stringent technical guidelines and project-specific quality control processes to provide value-added structural upgrade and strengthening solutions. Whether it is one, or a combination of several systems working together, we develop effective solutions for the most complex strengthening challenges. Solutions include:
- Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composite Systems
- Enlargement and Overlay Systems
- Internal and External Post-Tensioning Systems
- Micro-Reinforced Concrete Systems
- Supplemental Steel Systems
- Epoxy Injection
Our Commitment to Safety & Preplanning
PULLMAN’s project management and field personnel carefully preplan every project. Our crews address all areas of concern during project pre-planning, including safety, constructability, budgeting, scheduling, and phasing as it relates to optimizing efficiency and potential disruption to ongoing operations.
PULLMAN crews have the manpower to complete projects under the tightest schedules, or adjust and phase work to create work schedules that minimize disruption.
Industry-Leading Strengthening Products & Design Support
PULLMAN and STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES combine their unique capabilities to provide clients with both products and repair and maintenance services. Through the early adoption of innovative strengthening technology, we offer the experience and proven quality control programs to successfully provide strengthening solutions on new and existing structures. PULLMAN also integrates its services with select engineering partners and STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES to create turnkey, investigate – design – build solutions that provide owners with single source, cost and time-efficient projects.
STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES’ proprietary products are used to increase the load-carrying capacity of reinforced concrete and other structure types, including masonry, timber and steel. These systems may be used alone, or in any combination – including other commercially available products to solve complex structural load requirement changes.
