Building Maintenance & Structures Laboratories


Photographic Room

The Building Maintenance and Structures Laboratories are to be used as support centres for building surveying and defect diagnosis work to be carried out on sites. The Building Maintenance lab is equipped with a range of non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment and instruments which will allow students to learn the salient points of physical building inspection, defect diagnosis and maintenance.

The structural simulation and testing equipment in the Structures Laboratory complement the study of the modules on Structural Mechanics, Structural Analysis and Steel Design & CAD. Simple models of structures are used to study structural behavior and to illustrate the fundamental concepts of structural mechanics.

Experiments can be performed on simple structural elements for the measurement of relevant forces, displacements as well as strains.
