Forensic Structural and Civil Engineering investigations
Dilapidation surveys are ideally performed upon existing structures in the immediate vicinity of planned construction prior to it commencing to eliminate or reduce the potential for a dispute with adjacent property owners. On occasions the neighbouring properties may sustain minor cracking during construction and to mitigate potential future disputes, developers, contractors or property owners may commission a report.
Our dilapidation reports provide a detailed schedule of the condition of the property at a given time and include video, photographic evidence and a narrative description. We usually complete the inspection in two stages – just prior to construction or site works commencing and within the final maintenance period of the project.
With our skills in performing structural investigations, remedial and forensic engineering we are well placed to perform dilapidation surveys and monitoring of distress progression with an allocated cause.
Our team of engineers and building consultants has experience with many of the natural disasters that have occurred throughout Australia. These disasters are many and varied: Flood, Landslip, Cyclone, Bushfire, Storm events and Earthquake, and one of our key drivers has been to assist devastated communities to rebuild. We can contribute to natural disaster relief in communities all over the country regardless of where they are, and give our clients our utmost attention, allowing us to develop meaningful relationships.
Our professional team is ready to respond to the call from government, insurance companies, loss adjusters, commerce, industry and private community members to assist with structural and civil engineering assessments, remedial engineering and project management services following natural disasters.
