Building & Construction Inspections Throughout Melbourne
Contact Correct Inspect and ensure your construction project runs as smoothly as possible.
Our surveys will give you photographic evidence of the condition of the adjoining properties or council assets prior to the commencement of construction. It is an inexpensive report which provides an item-by-item account of a building or asset and its existing condition. If you choose not to get a Dilapidation Survey it is very difficult to verify existing defects or if damage to an adjoining property occurred during the construction period.
As a result many people find themselves wrapped up in very costly litigation because they didn’t get evidence of the extent of building or property defects before commencing the works.
Under Part 7 Section 94 of the Building Act 1993 it is a requirement for a Dilapidation Survey to be conducted on an adjoining property or asset prior to protection works or construction works being undertaken.
It makes sense to take every precaution possible when the cost of getting it wrong can cause major financial stress and you may wind up in a very costly litigation process without evidence that may otherwise indemnify you.
QUALITY ASSURANCE REPORTS
The report is a room by room account carried out approximately two weeks prior to the clients own independent Practical Completion Inspection. The property will need to be finished and cleaned before we come to site.
All defects and incomplete items noted on site will have a sticker placed beside them for ease of identification by the trades. Every defect is photographed and a narrative added so they can be easily located if the sticker is removed or falls off.
The defects are also sorted in to their different trades in the summary of the report. This allows the supervisor to simply print the summary and give it to the individual trades to action; saving the supervisors time on site so defects can be completed quickly.
The report will identify defective workmanship, incomplete
items, and items that do not comply with the Standards and
Tolerances Guide 2015 and items that may differ from your clients specification.
The rationale behind having a QA report carried out is to have the property finished so very few items can be identified by the clients own PCI inspector. This makes for a quick completion process and you will not have a long delay getting your final payment.
