Building Faults – Property Assessments
Inspection of remedial work due to building faults at time of construction, is very expensive to retify.
Property assessments of building structures are usually carried out during the construction, on completion and during the life of the building.
Assessments are by visual inspections and at times cutting into the structure to find the source of concealed defects causing water penetration issues.
A typical excample can be seen in the below photograph taken during our contract administration consultancy.
