Construction Defect Reports

Our Philosophy
A Building Defect Report is a detailed report itemising defective or incomplete construction works, and is often prepared in cases where a builder or contractor has ceased trading, or refuses to acknowledge their responsibility for defective or incomplete work.

New construction works: Less than 6 years old

Customised to a level of detail which suits our clients’ individual requirements

This ensures that we deliver quality, cost-effective reports which are specifically suited to the purpose for which they will be used.

After an initial consultation and discussion with our Client, followed by a building inspection and investigation of the issues raised, Building Consultancy Group can prepare a comprehensive defect report detailing the defects identified, accompanied by a photographic record.

Old Construction Works: More than 6 Years olD

Our Building Defect Reports can be used to assist with dispute resolution in mediations between the parties involved

This includes mediations chaired by the Building Inspector from the Office of Fair Trading (OFT).

Defects within new buildings are areas of non-compliance with the Building Code of Australia, various Australian Standards and published acceptable tolerances and standards.

In some cases it may be beneficial to carry out some ‘invasive’ testing and/or exploratory works to investigate the underlying building elements and substantiate building defects and their causes. We can arrange for this work to be carried out; further details about our Investigation & Diagnostic Services services are available on our website.
