Dilapidation surveys are assessments necessary for buildings and structures about to go into demolition work or when new works are being undertaken to nearby and closely located sites. Dilapidation assessments are undertake by a Gladstone Building and Pest Inspections to assess the pre-condition of building or structure encompassing the external and internal condition, as well closely located structures. Existing faults to the structure are then provided in a detailed report which includes leakages, distortion, cracks, settlement and existing building defects.
Surveys are detail the entire buildings which could include:
Footpaths and crossovers, infrastructure including walls and roof, roofing structures for deterioration, service pits and infrastructure, cornices and ceilings, downpipes and roof gutters, fixtures within the structure, flooring and tiling.
Reports are necessary to settle any potential dispute and avoid losses should there be any legal actions involved. Typically items stipulated in the contract or at the request of local authorities. Contractors will require a detailed survey before any work is carried out especially for major projects that involve demolition.
