It is in the spirit of the above statutory prescript that Clients may invite Kurumeng to conduct walk-through inspections and engineering performance analysis of their properties, plant, and equipment. The outcome will be a detailed report on the infrastructure health status outlining opportunities for improvements with related costing. We benchmark our work with global best practices and standards.
