Forensic Inspections conducted where existing structures are examined for structural damages. During our comprehensive inspections, we observe, measure, and document the defects so as to provide you with an accurate assessment to the root of the damages. This includes a wide range of building defects from structural issues (settlement, cracking, member collapses ) to maintenance and substandard workmanship issues. These damages could have happened due to environmental effects (wind, hurricane, flood, earthquake, etc.) or poor workmanship of the builder. Depends on the severity of the damage, we can propose remedies for rectification of defects to repair or restore your building

  • New construction inspections which are carried out as part of quality control of our engineering design are mainly in the following stages:
  • >Base
  • >Frame
  • >Lockup
  • >Fixing
  • A thorough report will be provided with references to Australian standards and relevant accredited documents to present to the builder during progress of construction.

Condition report of the adjoining property to a proposed construction works. It records and documents the existing conditions of the neighbor property that is likely to be affected by any demolition, excavation or construction.

Demolition could be a complicated process depending on the size or complexity of a structure. All demolition works needs to comply the Occupational Health and Safety Act & regulations (OHS ACT 004, OHS Regulation 2017) to ensure that safe procedure is practicing on site. A step by step demolition report by a structural engineer followed by certificate of compliance gives you a peace of mind at the time of working on site.
