Defect & Pathology Inspections & Reports
We have a great deal of experience in identifying defects in properties for a variety of clients. Our Litigation and Expert Witness work identifies defects in blocks with multiple units (flats/apartments) and we have been successful in taking forward actions against Developers and others in a number of high profile cases. (A building defect is defined as a material, component or finish which does not meet its expected performance criteria). Building Pathology and Defect Diagnosis can relate to problems in all types of buildings. The results of defects and the analysis of how the defects should be put right can occasionally be straightforward, but often requires special techniques and assistance, and a good deal of lateral thinking. Technical expertise and an understanding of building construction are essential to correctly identify the cause of building defects and the remedial measures required to put the defect(s) right.
