After the Project is completed, it is recommended that testing activities should be carried out periodically, depending on usage, age, wear and tear; just as any human being needs to go for check-up.
  • I am a certified COREN engineer and supervised the project. Should the project still be tested?
    For all intent and purposes, the need to test structures/buildings supervised by a certified COREN Engineer and/or registered Builder, should be paramount to such person(s). This would be an avenue to ascertain that all his/her site instructions were adhere to through out the span of the project by checking also with the end result.
