Defect Analysis 

 

Building water penetration problems are complex and pervasive. A rigorous process is used for determining the optimum method of rectification.

 

  • Determine the cause of water entry through deconstruction of a typical detail (non-destructive analysis used where appropriate)

  • If required, ascertain legal responsibility for the defect

  • Survey complete building to quantify different mode of ingress, their frequency and location

  • Determine  appropriate method of rectification

  • Test assumptions through construction of prototype repairs

  • Compile scope of works and / or specification for execution of the necessary works
