Inspection Services ( Facility Inspection )

A wide variety of methods for facility inspection are available today and little doubt exists that some level of inspection provides large economic return. Whether prolonging the useful life of line support structures (wood, steel, concrete or FRP), minimizing the catastrophic structure or line failures, or increasing safety to the public and crews, implementation of a regimented inspection program has substantial merit.

With its longstanding background in wood pole inspection, Intec understands the effectiveness of a wood pole inspection and maintenance program is dependent upon the experience of inspection personnel. Factors to consider in a thorough inspection include knowledge of the climate of the region, initial treatment adequacy, efficacy and frequency of remedial treatment applications, pole species, age in service, historical performance, and management’s support for the objectives for the program.
