Defects Analysis

Very often a client will contact the practice ask for advice on a particular problem with their building.

Sometimes such problems can be quite obvious to the trained eye of an experienced surveyor. However the source of the problem is not always so obvious and can require a more detailed investigation to determine the cause, and thereafter the necessary remedial work.
Sometimes this service requires further investigation such as the opening up of parts of the structure. On other occasions laboratory analysis of materials is needed, this is particularly so in concrete failures or when dealing with asbestos based materials.
Stephen D Buxton & Associates are able to undertake such investigations and report on the cause of particular problems. Stephen D Buxton & Associates can also report on the extent of the necessary investigation works, the cost of repairs and subsequently provide contract administration services to implement repair works.
