Bridge and Facility Condition Inspections are our core services.
PRIME has 18 professionally registered structural engineers, many of whom have significant inspection experience. PRIME has inspected more than 1,000 bridges since 2007 and combined, individual staff members have inspected more than 8,000 bridges in their careers.
