Examination Center

In addition to our own investigations and assessments at the highest professional level in the “contaminated building and construction waste“, “disused military waste and explosive ordnances” and “rock fall and landslide hazards” subject areas our institute is also qualified to perform external monitoring and to take on tasks as head technical expert. The examination centers are certified according to ISO 9001:2015  and have a QM system according to DIN 17020.

As an “Examination Center for Contaminated Building Materials and Construction Waste” LGA-IUA has the competence to perform inspections in areas such as:
