In the beginning we were consulting in almost all areas of the building sector, but as the years passed on the company quietly got more and more specialized in the following 4 primarily main areas;
”Sins of the past”
The company has over the years built up a considerable experience in consulting and management of "Sins of the past" Here we are thinking about:
This is about;
PCB: Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB’s) are present in a variety of building materials and may present a significant impact to constructions projects. The presence of PCB’s in caulking, sealants, paints, adhesives and other building materials dates from the 1930s to the banning of PCB’s in domestically manufactured products in 1979. In that time period, however, PCBs were added to hundreds of building products due to their chemical stability, non-flammability, insulating properties and high flash point.
LEAD - As the above
Asbestos - As the above
”Below the surface”
Like above we build our experience on many years of working close together with some of the largest insurance companies, the private sector and the public sector.
We have during the years achieved a significant “bank” of knowledge within scale provision, testing, CCTV, No-DIG solutions, descriptions/reports, tender calculation, “finding” the right entrepreneurs for the job, any kind of supervision, control and total counselling.
Primarily dealing with;
- Subsidence damage in and below ground, settlement damage of foundation before and after foundation movement
- Projecting of work/task, calculations, grouting and sketches
- Water/damp penetrating on and under terrain
- Drain solutions, surrounding house drain for surface water, connection drains, wastewater drains and ground-plan drains
- Dewatering of specific areas and lowering of the groundwater level
We have over the years gained a very high confidentiality with our clients and therefore we are very often “chosen” by our clients to take over the full control of the project for the client.
We are very often considered as “a stand in” for the client. Especially in building or renovation projects the client would hire us to take charge of all the aspects during the full time of the project.
For example quality control during the different phases of the project, material supervision, site control, conduction of meetings, handing over to new tenants/owners, failures/mistakes (and the hassle with that) with the builders during the building/renovating ad follow-up meetings after the hand-over of the project and also one, two and five years meetings if so is needed.
In connection with our clients investments we are often “used” as the guard dog for a critical inspection of building materials used for the project. That ensures that our clients always gets the best value for their money and we always deliver the best result.
We are also frequently used in solicitor cases where a solicitor has a complicated house/building case.
We will assist the solicitor in guiding him/her with the technical terms and difficulties so they can deliver the best result to their client.
”Energy & Environment”
Scanbau Ltd. has over a period of several years accumulated a significant knowledge within the Environment and Energy area and in 2014 we were nominated in one of our “Total Renovation” cases to the “Better Building & Living Price” and ended up amongst the top 20 in Denmark.
Today Scanbau has our core around 4 Consultants.
- Timo: Born 1965, senior technical engineer, Director for Hungary, founder and Partner.
- Brian: Born 1962, Environmental and No-Dig specialist, Director for Ireland and Partner.
- Peter: Born 1971, Constructor.
- Jan: Born 1955, HD in finance and accountancy.
All staff above has a military background which we in our daily work still are “marked by”. Precision and timelines is factors that have our highest priority.
We work out from two very important parameters:
“SOP” Standard Operation Procedure. Everything we do is or will become standardised since this will make our day much easier and ensure that we reach our results to the highest point for our client.
“Minimum Effort Maximum Return”. Everything is constantly trimmed and adapted for the best achievable result for our clients and thereby also for the Company.
Daily in Denmark and Sweden Peter is the “face” of the company
