Strata Building Inspections Perth

Being aware of the short, medium and long-term costs associated with the maintenance of a Strata building is essential to Council of Owners and Strata Managers.  Further, the imminent Strata Titles Amendment Bill 2018, due to be introduced to Parliament in late 2019, will require the Strata body to obtain a 5 to 10 Year Maintenance Plan.

Our Strata Inspection Report will provide a comprehensive list of building defects both structural and non-structural – including all common areas, identify areas of immediate risk and offer recommendations for maintenance and repairs.  A Maintenance Plan which allows for a timeline, with a prioritised list of items for maintenance, repair, renewal or replacement and estimated costs, will allow for the budgeting of each.

Structural / Building Condition Assessments Perth

While the source of structural failure varies, it can however be linked to inadequacies in materials, design, construction, unexpected loads or deterioration over time. The Structural / Building Condition Assessment Report can be either a full assessment/report or more specific to a client’s needs/requirements and will clearly identify structural issues and building defects in strata complexes, residential homes, commercial buildings and other structures including sheds, workshops, etc.   Items identified will include significant cracking or leaning of walls, cracks/defects in floors, unsound modifications to the roof structure, movement or sagging in the roof structure, moisture issues such as leaks and rising damp and the condition of any external structures such as retaining walls, pergolas, fencing, balconies, etc. The report will offer innovative fit-for-purpose solutions and all information can be used to estimate maintenance and remediation costs over the specified period thus reducing major costs in the future.
