TIS means Technical Inspection Services.

A TIS is an institute with technical experts, independent of all other professional groups who are familiar with construction or design. A TIS only checks, a TIS doesn’t construct or design. A TIS analyses risks, checks the design and checks the site. In the end, a TIS gives an approval of the complete built object and an explanation how this approval was established.

BouwQ is active in this branch since 2003. – Since then we gained a lot of experience with this type of work.

Leading civil projects are: Second Coentunnel Amsterdam, Railwaybridges Den Bosch and aqueduct / large bridges in highway Schiphol-Amsterdam-Almere.

Leading (non-residential) building-projects are: European Patent Office and Council Deventer.

Our ambition is to get the highest level of build quality by doing our risk-driven checks. To realise this ambition, we have five core values:

Expertise and experience: we have a highly educated staff and for specialised knowledge, we co-operate with well-known institutes in the Netherlands: TNO, Deltares and SGS-Intron.
Completeness: we recommend to consider all aspects of an object from the beginning to realisation. Not only checking the object, but also check what’s the influence of the environment.
Clearness: not only signalling a problem, but also explain loud and clearly the backgrounds of this problem.
Independent: we don’t advise, we only check. So we never perform any engineerings job for companies, like building contractors, engineers, insurance companies or lenders. We only check.
Measurable performance: our portfolio with many leading projects confirms that we perform very well in our business.
