On projects that use the annual service regularly, the inspection and maintenance is normally completed within the agreed upon time constraints without any additional costs. In addition, the Inspector is able to refer to the findings from previous inspections. This history file can assist the Inspector in planning his visit, as well as highlighting specific areas for him to re-examine from previous repairs.
With this in mind, Birdair offers an annual Inspection and Maintenance Program, which is performed by trained and experienced personnel, all of whom have continuing involvement in the installation and maintenance of such structures. The program can work as follows:
The Owner would enter into a simple agreement with Birdair. This agreement can be for one, three, five or more years.
The agreement spells out the conditions for an inspection visit with associated maintenance. The on-site time allocated would depend on the size of the structure, usually 8 to 40 hours.
A full inspection is made of the fabric membrane and those portions of the associated support system that was part of the original Scope of Work when the structure was installed.
A detailed report is made of the inspection. If any maintenance is needed that can be performed in the time frame of the inspection, it will be done by the Inspector. Any other necessary or recommended repair work will be reported and coordinated with the Owner.
Based on test results, conclusions can be drawn regarding the estimated service life of the membrane. This information can be of value to an Owner when preparing his long-term capital improvement plan.
