Assessment of construction work to identify defects and preparation of reports to be used in legal proceedings to settle disputes.

It is common that completed building work does not comply with the building code and/or the building consent, either because it was carried out without a building consent and/or the design and/or construction was deficient. 

Frequently a building consent that has been issued does not actually comply with the NZ building code and so amendments or variations are required to the plans, specifications and construction work in order to comply with the building code.

By carrying out a survey to identify building code and/or building consent non-compliances and preparing a written report we can provide a basis for resolving disputes.
