Forensic Building Consultants Building Surveying

Building surveying is undertaken by our consultants. We have the knowledge and experience in understanding buildings, to deal with technical issues that arise. We are independent and give honest and objective assessments. Our advice enables you to best manage your building asset.

Our broad expertise in consulting on buildings is best utilised at the planning and commencement stage of your project, however we can help at any of the following stages of your building:

  • At the planning phase
  • During your building project
  • Existing buildings
  • Buildings with defects, leaky or problematic issues
  • Building Condition Surveys

    We advise the current condition, identify defects and non-compliance with the NZ Building Code.  Our report provides recommendations for the remedial work required.  We can assist with maintenance schedules, following completion of remedial works or to an existing building.
