Sharing Knowledge saves Lives
In our industry it is our duty to share acquired knowledge.
The Structural and Testing field is bigger than any one company and the ramifications of industry experts not working together, companies not sharing knowledge and experience only leads to an unnecessary loss of human life and financial costs to the economy.
As such, we at Henderson Thomas are always looking at new avenues to get the work out on what we have learned to save structural assets and protect lives and these include.

Concrete Magazine Car Parks October 2020
Aged reinforced concrete structures requiring assessment are common;
however, when a car park only five years old displayed deterioration that is often only associated with older assets, it was obvious something was seriously wrong.
Warren Thomas the director outlines how the Henderson Thomas Associates discovered the root of the problem.
Concrete Magazine Fibres April 2020
With steel-fibre-reinforced concrete becoming more prevalent in construction, problems can arise in determining potential defects, such as voidage due to clumping of the fibres.
Warren Thomas of Henderson Thomas Associates outlines how ultrasonic pulse technology (tomography) overcame the issue of detecting the presence of such voids in a fibre-reinforced concrete slab.
The ground-bearing slab within this particular warehouse under investigation was some 6500m²in area and problems had been detected while drilling holes into the slab for the insertion of a racking anchorage system.
