Timber frame assessment and decay identification during remediation projects. We are qualified and experienced in the identification of decayed timber requiring replacement during the remediation of leaky buildings.

Laboratory analysis is undertaken to confirm the existing levels of timber treatment (if any) and the fitness for purpose of the timber to remain in the building. This gives the owners, contractor, architect and council confidence that the framing left in situ complies with the requirements of NZ building code clause B2 Durability.

We monitor the remedial construction process to ensure that the timber scheduled for replacement is replaced and that the existing timber framing is treated with a preservative treatment to ensure compliance with the NZ building code clause B2 Durability. We provide a photographic remediation report as a record of the timber framing remedial process, including a durability statement (similar to a producer statement) for the timber frame of the building.

Auckland Council accepts our photographic remediation reports.
