For the past 25 years, SIMCO has been involved in numerous major national and international projects relating to the design of durable new construction projects and the elaboration of preservation plans for existing structures.
SIMCO assists owners and managers in analyzing, designing, and maintaining civil engineering structures while supporting sound asset management and decision-making practices. By combining sophisticated materials analysis techniques and leading-edge service-life predictive technologies, SIMCO’s unique and flexible approach leads to better business decisions for the effective management of concrete infrastructure.
A pioneer in the development of innovative tools for the construction industry, SIMCO has developed the STADIUM® software, which is recognized as the most efficient and accurate numerical solution for the prediction of long-term behavior of reinforced concrete structures exposed to a wide range of aggressive environments. Since 2010, SIMCO’s STADIUM® software is the only service-life prediction tool recognized and specified by the U.S. Department of Defense for the design and construction of new maritime works for the U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and NASA. Since 2012, STADIUM® is also recognized by the U.S. Department of State and is referenced for use within the OBO Building Code, for use in their new construction projects, and maintenance and repair of their existing structures abroad.
SIMCO’s experts have been called on across the globe to understand infrastructure durability issues that go far beyond the scope of routine engineering works. With the commitment and dedication of a multidisciplinary team of highly-qualified engineers, scientists, technicians, IT engineers, programmers, and professionals, SIMCO continues to deliver unparalleled technologies and solutions for several industries around the globe, including Engineering, Transportation, Energy, Defense, Real Estate, Construction, and more…
