A Certificate of static adequacy is a document required to be provided by a private engineer in a number of cases, such as workplace licensing and usage changes.
The preparation to be made before the Certification of Static Adequacy is in general the following:
- Investigation to identify the building permit and the approved architectural and static studies of the building.
- Autopsy on the property in order to:
- Examine if the approved plans and studies fits with the building
- Record and evaluate possible pathological elements of the construction (cracks, sedimentation, bending arrows, fatigue strength etc.)
Ideally, the site’s autopsy should be accompanied by checks on the static carrier so that the engineer has a complete and complete picture.<spanconverted-space”> Due to the increased cost of such work and in cases where it is not required by law, the tests are not performed and the inspection performed by the engineer is macroscopic.
