Our Building reports are a useful tools for:
If required and on approval we can assist in the tendering activity where we can provide the client a number of preferred insurance panel builders or specialist builders to quote on the works
and we can complete critical stage inspections or contractor progress payment inspections for the work in progress to ensure the construction, rectification or maintenance activity is in place and suitably completed
Finding solutions to leaky issues can be challenging. Our reports employ suitable detection equipment reducing time spent diagnosing the cause.
We have suitable testing equipment that will diagnose your report items faster resulting in better reporting, minimising mis-diagnosis and lowering rectification costs
What can be deemed a defect?
Some are obvious! Our reports may be used as a guide to determine whether an item is defective.
An item can be described as defective if it dose not meet the standards set out in the National code, does not meet the Criteria set out in Guide to Standards and Tolerances and does not measure up to the Specification in the building contract.
Our reports are based on standards set out in the Building Code of Australia which is a National Code that applies to all states and territories through their own building control legislation.
The building code sets out functional statements of how a building is considered to meet community expectations and how to go about achieving this objective i.e. meeting minimum expected standards.
What is a reasonable standard of construction and workmanship in a building project? Our building reports may be used as a guide to determine whether or not an item is within toleranceand a suitable standard and finish to meet the code requirements and equally importantly, meets the clients scope. Our Building inspections in Sydney NSW 2074 will meet your requirements.
The National Construction Code sets out minimum standards for building construction.
The Building Code of Australia (BCA) is Volumes One and Two of the National Construction Code (NCC). The BCA is produced and maintained by the by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) on behalf of the Australian Government and State and Territory Governments.
In 2004-05, the Victorian Building Commission funded research to investigate the number and types of disputes and their causes arising from building contracts. Of particular note, there were problems in around 22 per cent of projects. Industry wide, these problems resulted in millions of dollars worth of costs when dealing with the
contractual and construction issues, in rectifying defective work and/or in resolving disputes. The problems generally arose from concerns surrounding issues relating to the quality of building work, concerns about the contract, or scope of building work.
Where additional attention is needed in particular projects, our reports will inform and focus the parties on reasonable building outcomes and assist them in gaining a positive building experience.
