Expert opinions for end-consumers

 

ift Centre of Technical Experts

Building components such as windows, doors and facades are complex systems that are critical for the functions and suitability of use of a building. Furthermore, these building components play an important role in the architectonical design and the value of the property. It is accordingly problematic, if these building components do not work as desired.

During the planning, the manufacture and installation through impacts during the period of utilisation or simply due to the ravages of time, damages may occur which consequently may trigger construction damages. Frequently law suits arise out of this, which make it reasonable to include a specialised official expert. The ift Expert Centre utilises its experience spanning several years in the fields of testing, certification and research, where the holistic consideration of building components and installation conditions is always in the foreground. The assignments can be dealt with comprehensively.
