    WTIA is frequently requested to provide expert witness or technical opinion during, or on completion of a number of projects where a fault was found or there was disagreement between parties.  Depending on circumstances, opinion provided includes:

    • Interpretation of standards and / or inspection tests / results;
    • Fitness for service;
    • Recommendations for remedial works; and
    • Apportioning responsibility / determining Degree of fault

    WTIA has enabled numerous projects, where issues relating to welding activities had occurred, to progress to completion in the fastest and most cost effective manner.

    Examples include:

    Determination of remedial works required to enable fitness for service of bridges not fabricated to fatigue purpose requirements as per contract. This methodology enabled remedial works to be completed within a few months, whereas lead time for fabrication of new components was approximately 18 months. Savings included:

    • Remedial works – less than 2% of re-fabrication costs
    • Avoidance of substantial penalties due to late delivery
    During construction of a new building, lamellar tearing defects were found at a number of weld joints. WTIA provided advice to understand the:

    • Root cause of defects
    • Repair the defects in-situ and change of joint design to avoid recurrence.
    • Savings included enabling project to be completed in original time frame and avoidance of major demolition and reconstruction costs
